Something lighthearted and fun for this Friday: It’s snow season around here and I recently enjoyed some fun in it. The snowman started out normal enough, but ended up turning out distorted – kind of like Frosty’s demented radio-active cousin. It’s been a few years since making my last snowman, so I was a bit out of practice. Since he was already pretty odd looking, I threw on some horns and “gonna grab you” arms and hands to complete the look. The little snow puppy turned out pretty well considering I’ve never made one before.
After snapping a photo, I was reminded of those crazy Calvin and Hobbes snowman-based cartoons. I can’t hold a candle to the comedic genius expressed in those comics, but still wanted to share my little construction-in-the-cold. My wife doesn’t care for the “horned snowman of doom”, but I got a kick out of it and hope it brings a smile to your face, too.
For those of you who live in a winter wonderland this time of year, what kind of snow-creations have you (or your kids) made recently or in winters past? Tell me about it. Post a link to a photo or two in your comment, if you’ve got any to share.
