Snowy Monday

I had been wishing for just a little more winter and it was delivered overnight. Love a good snow day, even though it didn't spare us from work or school. Sabrina doesn't go to school on Mondays and we weren't going anywhere anyway. It's a bright day, cold and a little windy. We were once again unsuccessful in building a real snowman, the snow too powdery. Or is there a secret?

Being in Austin, I have NO advice on how to build a snowman ;)

The snow looks so pristine...how wonderful that you two relaxed and enjoyed it.

Beautiful shots...LOVE the one with a finger full of snow...and the last one with your sweet Sabrina almost walking right out of the frame.

What glorious snow! Looks so inviting for a lovely play.

I think you have to have the right kind of snow, the powdery stuff just doesn't pack.

I remember building a small snowman once as a kid by pouring water over the powder snow to get it to pack. It turned out to be more of an ice man than a snowman, but it did work, so you might try that.

It was porbably too powdery. You need a wet snow for optimum snowmaking capability.
