    I Build Snowmen..

     I live in the tundra. We have our first snow storm in October and the snow doesn't go away until April, sometimes May. IT SNOWED ON MY BIRTHDAY. (Which is in May.) What else is there to do besides build snowmen? Inappropriate snowmen are the best.

    Selfish Snowmen

    Then he quite selfishly melted overnight and I was so upset I built another one. But, alas, he too melted. Then we ran out of snow and I couldn't make anymore snowmen. Nowadays I stick to snowball fights. Much more enjoyable.

    Not Just Any Ordinary Snowman. ;)

    When I was 19, I lived in a really sweet mansion with my friend and her family, and a bunch of crazy college roommates... Being on the west coast, we don't see much snow usually, but for a few days on and off. It sticks for a little while if we are lucky, and then melts away...
