Well, we got about 5 inches of very wet snow in Myrtle Beach Friday night, so the only thing to do Sat. was build a snowman! Had to work fast, b/c it was mostly melted by mid afternoon. Built one, he cave in, and made a 2nd, who lasted better. Don’t get may chances, so had to take advantage. Oh yeah, it is a woodworking project, his eyes, nose and mouth are wenge scraps from a bandsaw project. Arms are wood scraps too!

Note the Pittsburgh Steelers hat and scarf! Grew up in PA, which is where I larned to build snowmen. This guy dfoes lean a little. Must be getting rusty!

There is just something very wrong about seeing palm trees and snow in the same picture :(

Looks like you had fun!

It’s a shame that palm trees should support snow. Where the heck is global warming when you need it????

It takes many years of practice to become an expert snowman builder, I cut my teeth in snowmanology growing up in Minnesota. That my friend is a mighty fine specimen, I like how he is leaning in to take the photo with you.

Tim, great photo. We got 33” in my neighborhood in Montgomery Village, Md. The whole time I was shoveling about 12 hours worth, I was cussing Al Gore. “This is some nice global warming Al”.

I notice Al is keeping a low profile lately. Since there is about 1 scandal per week about man made global warning being a fabrication.
