Early one morning it began to snow at a constant rate. At 7 AM a snowplow set off to clear a road. By 8 AM it had traveled 2 miles but it took two more hours for the snowplow to go another 2 miles. Assuming that the snowplow clears snow from the road at a constant rate (in cubic feet per hour), at what time did it start to snow?
