“It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea.” ― Dylan Thomas.
Yesterday was Halloween. It was also the day that the area received a fair amount of snow. During the day the children at a nearby school got busy and formed independent work groups to build the biggest snowman possible. However when I looked around the schoolyard a short time later I noticed that the overly enthusiastic groups were all building a massive base for their snowmen. Over time a few of the more insightful youngsters realized that gigantic snowballs were the best they could do. The yard is now festooned with an array of snowmen bottoms. Oh well. The kids were having fun amid the chaos more so than the current White House. — gc
