Well, Manchester has received an uncharacteristic amount of snow this week so the missus and I thought we'd build snowmen!
Not done anything with snow since I was a kid, mainly because we don't get much snow. Needless to say I got carried away - I was having WAY too much fun

I'm here in Canada and have hardly enough snow for a snowball let alone a snowman sad.gif I have yet to be on snowmobile which is not sitting well with me at all. It's been raining or above 0 degrees celcius here since before christmas. It's really depressing.

It has been a really weird year for weather.

Awesome snowmen though man. Very creative smile.gif

that has to be one of the coolest snowmen I`ve ever seen, my last effort in the snow with my daughter before christmas was only about 2ft high and didnt look anything like a snowman, more like a 2ft mound of snow! laugh.gif

Hehe. Thanks for the compliments. It started off as the standard three snow balls stacked atop of each other, then I got handed a knife. Who says that you can only be destructive with a knife?
Yeah, the amount of snow here and the lack of it in places where one would expect snow is astounding. I've had fun looking out of the window today; the snowman/hero stands proud of the driveway which is on the corner of the road so quite a lot of passing cars/pedestrians slowed down with rather bemused looks on their faces.
I've seen worse though, or rather, more controversial snow-"men" *ahem*

That. Is. Awesome!

Yeah, we've had a goatload of snow here in Norway these last couple of weeks as well. More snow then we've had in years, really.. And -30 degrees celcius doesen't help tongue.gif

Definetly one of the worst winters I've experienced so far!
'S all good, though: I've got a guitar-motived scarf biggrin.gif
