When the Snowman Melts

In the days leading up to Christmas, we had substantial snow (and then, sleet, and then, rain) and the conditions were ripe for building a snowman.

I should have taken a picture right then and there, but I forgot. On day two, the weather turned warm and the snowman began to … droop.

Here are some pictures that are part of the PhotoFriday collective (you can join in, too).

Today … might be another rebuilding day.

  2. Glad you had some snow, Alex. And glad the cat didn’t freeze.
    We have had two pretty nice and shiny days, but there is still plenty of snow around.
    And the snowman still stands …
