Snowfall - How to Make the Best of It

Updated on November 25, 2015

It's Pretty Crudely Made But You Get the Idea

We Have Snow This Week

It's been years since I made a snowman. The weather feels a little moist, but not very cold. The snow is sticky and it makes a ball very easily with a little squishing.

The snowman is made by making a ball and putting it on a stretch of smooth snow. Then, you roll the ball over, and pack any snow that sticks to it. Then, you roll the ball over again. Because you want a round ball, you pack snow into the sides of the rolled ball.

When you get a ball shape, you start another one. The second ball should be almost as big as the first ball. You will need to lift this second ball on top of the first ball.

Then, you'll have to make a third ball. This ball is slightly smaller than the second ball. It goes on top of the second ball. It is the head of your snowman.

My snowman looks pretty pathetic. There is mud under the snow since we've had some warm weather this week and this snow is a special surprise.

Note: try to avoid using yellow snow. We all know that yellow snow is from my dog going to the bathroom and is not desirable on my snowman.

      I remember an old SNL routine about a couple of steroid heads who promised to "pump you up!" But in reality, I don't think steroids would help your snowman--much.
