Default Thin white smoke from 98 corolla?

I have a 98 corolla and today while I was driving, there was extremely thin white smoke coming from

The hood. Nothing you could see without opening the hood, noticed it when I was trying to check something. Then I went and accelerated very fast then there was a alright amount of thin white smoke coming, parked and checked it, basically all went away in 10 seconds but there was still a very faint white smoke. Any ideas? Where I am there's lots of snow,

Also, engine was on the cooler side,

Was not overheating. Any suggestions?

me thinks snow is just getting to hot engine components. likely the exhaust. might check bellie pans/diapers on the under carraige. see ifin they are up and secure. though the bellie pans won't be covering the exhaust itself up. eh...

just fer sh*ts and giggles, might put a piece of cardboard under it when you park it tonight. note spots in the AM, look above for signs of any issues. gonna get a little foolled with the bellie pans. leaks can show up one place, be leaking from another.
