Snowmen of Bronze
While we were in Iowa, Maia and I seized the opportunity to make some snowmen (we had not yet had snow in Jersey - and when we returned all the Jersey snow had already melted!). The snow we were working with was very dense because it had been rained on, so Uncle Biff had to help us lift the snowman sections that were 100+ pounds. These four are supposed to be our family, but Maia and Mommy came out to be about the same height - oh, well! My mom says she's continuing to get compliments on them, three weeks later. After we made them they were coated in a half inch of ice, like a glaze. Then it kept snowing in Iowa, the most snow they've had since 1978, i.e. before I was born. Definitely no melting there.
