Photographic evidence of snow

I mentioned snow earlier. Have some evidence.

View from my window
This is what the snow looks like from my bedroom window. Well, one of them. It doesn't help that my desk faces the window and I keep staring out the window and watching the snow when I should be working.

So at some point this afternoon Renu and I decided to build something outside. Ours is at the very end, but see some of the other creations that we passed on the way.

Yes, that is my foot.
To give you an idea of how deep the snow was, this is my foot in the snow. It's getting dark now, but it's still going a little out there.

Emaciated Snowman
I feel sorry for this snowman, the first we saw. Wasn't last month Love Your Body month? That applies to non-humans too!

Fractal Snowman
Yes, a snowman on top of a snowman. "Fractal snowman!" I exclaimed as I tried to add a third snowman to the sequence. It didn't work. This one was actually the last we saw.

Deck the gazebo with pourings of snow
Obligatory picture of the gazebo.

Drunk Snowwoman
Yes, a snow-woman. And yes, those are bottles of alcohol at her feet. I'm impressed at how the creator(s) managed to clothe her.

Whiskered Snowman
My pine needle whiskers. Let me show you them.

Classic Snowman
A cute and simple snowman. This one brings back childhood memories, like the time my brother and neighbors and I made a huge snowman when we were kids and it stayed up for months until one of my neighbors decapitated it with a baseball bat.

Bowing Snowman
I have no idea what this one's bowing at, but it's pretty fierce. The sunglasses and pine needles add that touch to it.

Swan (that is not a snowman)
It's not a snowman, it's a swan! And a good one at that. I'm impressed that they got the neck to stay up.

Big Arms Snowman
My humongous arms, let me show you them.

Talkative Snowwoman
I'm pretty sure I know where they got that phone from. But it's another snow-woman!

Super Snowman
It's Super Snowman! I wonder why he's mad, though.

And finally...
Summer snowwoman
This is our snow-woman. Renu and I started with the idea of making a snow bunny, then a snow devil, which evolved into this. Everything except the sticks, flowers, and pine needle (mouth) came from our room. Her materials:

*candy cane horns or ears or something
*flowers for her hair
*lollipop eyes
*bouncy ball nose
*pine needle mouth
*stick arms
*Black Cat/Mardi Gras beads
*bra (and yes, I hand-crafted those boobs!)
*flowers at her feet (we tried to put them in other places, but that didn't go over too well)

Fun fact: Dean Diedrick passed us as we were finishing her up and took a picture of the three of us. Possible immortalization?
