Snow Men

Snow men have appeared all over town, in the middle of pavements, on playgrounds, on cars, on walls.
Very small ones...

Snow Man Set Me Free

very tall ones...

There is Snow God

Alexia and I built a Snow Mole, who drew a small crowd and was much hugged, kissed and photographed.

How fun! Happily, we are sunny, moderately temperatured and completely snow free!

There was some spookiness going on out there... an inordinate amount of snowmen with carrots for eyes especially. I can understand the reflex, I think - "Oh My Goodness! Snow! Quick! Grab a carrot! And some coal! Coal??? What??? Got no coal! Who's got coal???! Damn! Take loads of carrots!!! Go!!!!"
Also the snow was almost impossible to roll, much too powdery, one had to just pack it down in armfuls...
Ah, it was lovely.

Er, maybe because I have seen more Winnie the Pooh pictures than of moles, but I could have sworn it was Winnie wearing a hat-with-a-bird-nest-in-it. Nervous smile.
