ur first Colorado snow sculpture!
Here's Jeanne doing some initial carving.
On Friday, I piled up some snow in the back yard. What could we make? Could it be a statue of a corgi? The snow was light and it didn't pack very well. I made a 4 by 6 foot block about 5 feet tall. Due to the warm weather, the corgi idea wasn't going to fly. Maybe we would make a turtle...
but the idea regressed to a non-vertebrate !
By Saturday, the snow was melting quickly so we had to work fast getting the shell together.
While placing the antennae, the head fell off!
We quickly slapped together a new head, got the antennae back in place and took a last shot of our creation.
Sure, it's smiling now, but it will be gone by tomorrow!
Some snow that was. Maybe 6 inches total in Fort Collins. All the streets were dry by the end of the following day due to the warm sun that seems to shine every day around here. What fun is that?
