Most important of all, snow is fun. It brings out the child in all of us. When it sneaks in during the night, it decorates the landscape, magically transforming the ordinary into something special. It has something to offer all of us. Serious sport enthusiasts may enjoy skiing, skating, and snowboarding. The more playful among us enjoy the simpler pleasures of sledding, snowball fights and snow angels.
And, of course, there is our favorite activity: snow sculpture.
Chase was nice enough to take pictures after we finished. I did this one. It's a snow sea monster/dragon/thing. I like making unusual creations. The first sculpture I ever did was a unicorn resting on my parents picnic table. Since then, there have been dragons, horses, old snowmen sitting on lawn chairs, a jaguar stalking on a neighbor's car, and an Easter bunny for a spring snowfall.
