Frosty's Head was Blown Off
Trip to Arkansas
One year my parents decided to take a trip to Arkansas to visit my grandparents. We drove all the way there and I don't remember much about the drive, other than driving though the desert and places called Bakersfield and Needles.
Snow! Building Frosty
While we were visiting my grandparents in Arkansas, it snowed about 5 inches. I had never seen snow and was totally excited. I figured out how to make a snowman and made one that looked just like Frosty, complete with a hat and corn cob pipe. I had to use a carrot for his nose though and I used two grapes for his eyes. I even put a scarf around his neck. I spent all day creating Frosty and was very proud of my creation.
The next day I got up early in the morning and went to play with Frosty. When I saw Frosty, I was immediately scared. His head was missing. I asked my grandparents what happened to Frosty and my grandpa explained that someone shot Frosty with a shotgun and blew his head off. I asked him why and he said "I guess they don't like Frosty in Arkansas". I didn't have the nerve to rebuild Frosty. I just went around with teary eyes and collected his eyes, nose, pipe, hat, and scarf.
