Winter storm makes mountains disappear

I was driving home from work tonight while a light rain was falling in Tucson.  I reached the intersection of Speedway and Kolb and realized the winter storm that had brought in the rain and really cold temperatures dropped clouds low enough that the mountains normally visable north of Tucson were obscured.

It's not easy to hide a mountain.  Ask anyone with a big zit.

The mountains are hiding behind some low clouds.

This is the same intersection on a clear day.
