One must have a mind of winter
To regard the frost and the boughs
Of the pine-trees crusted with snow;

And have been cold a long time
To behold the junipers shagged with ice,
The spruces rough in the distant glitter

Of the January sun; and not to think
Of any misery in the sound of the wind,
In the sound of a few leaves,

Which is the sound of the land
Full of the same wind
That is blowing in the same bare place

For the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.

melted snowman

Where have all the snowmen gone

Melted each and every one

Turned to water then to ice

Gone to warmer climates

Where it’s warm and nice

They drink clear water

With lemon and ice

They eat strawberries and cream

And now live the snowman’s dream

8 Tips For Making The Best Snowman… Ever!

how-to-make-snowman-by-Etolane.jpgIf you’re fortunate enough to live somewhere that gets snow in the winter regularly, then you probably build the occasional snowman.

Or, if you’re like me, you only buld a snowman once every 2 years or so — which is about how often Seattle gets enough snow to build a snowman!

Either way, following are some good tips you can use to make your snowman totally cool for yourself… and your neighborhood.



8 Snowman Tips:

#1  Locate a good spot for your snowman.

While the inclination may be to put Frosty, Fred or whatever you and or your kids decide to name your snowman in the middle of your yard, the best place is underneath a tree or some other location that is partially protected.

#2  Don’t try to build a snowman unless you havewet snow.

Powdery snow or snow in icy conditions doesn’t pack worth a darn; you’ll just spend more time trying to put the pieces of your snowman together than you will anything else. It’s best to wait for conditions where the snow falls and it is just below freezing (or just above freezing). Those are the best conditions for making a snowman.

#3  Start at the bottom.

Begin by getting a handful of snow, pack it into a small to medium sized ball and then roll that ball around on the ground in front of you until it is large enough to support the rest of your snowman. Then do the middle, and the top part of your snowman’s body.

#4  Make arms for your snowman out of snow, rather than using sticks.

Me and my brother used to do this when we were kids. It makes your snowman look more real.

#5  Don’t dress your snowman in anything you care about.

Putting your favorite scarf on on a snowman isn’t exactly the smartest thing to do. Why? Because, unfortunately, people do steal items off snowmen. So, be sure and use things that you don’t care about, rather than lose a beloved item.

#6  Use food coloring to show your snowman’s emotions.

While you can still use rocks or buttons etc. to make the facial features for your snowman, food coloring can be used to show blush on the snowman’s cheeks. Or, blue might be used to indicate a blue mood.

#7  Be creative with your snowman’s features.

When it comes to dressing your snowman and creating a personality for your temporary winter friend, take some time when crafting his facial features. Additional props like hats and scarves are always good to help your snowman look more real.

#8  Be sensitive to others who live in your neighborhood.

For example, while using a carrot for something other than a nose may be funny to you and your pals, your neighbors with children are not going to appreciate an x-rated snowman. Also, refrain from using snowpeople to create violent scenes. We all see more than enough violence on television and in movies without having to also see snowpeople horror scenes.
