Snow Dragon!

After -50 degrees windchill last week, 40 degrees felt positively balmy. I mean, seriously. That's 90 degrees warmer within a week. Crazy Minnesota. -_-

To celebrate the warmth, we went to a park with a bunch of friends. It turned into a t-shirt & mittens, snowball fight, and snow-dragon-building kinda Sunday afternoon. A bunch of pals making something together just for the heck of it. Seriously can't get much better than that, guys.

*Photos from various iPods & phones among the group. Some days simply do not require fancy cameras or fancy words to make them appear lovely. They just are. :)

Evening shadows at 3:30.

We left cold and wet and rosy happy, congratulating ourselves on the completion of one dang epic dragon. If we do say so ourselves. 

Have you ever built anything crazy out of snow (or sand, for that matter)? 


  1. This looks so lovely! I heard about the crazy weather in Murica ( ;) ) and didn't get jealous at all. -50 seems a bit too extreme for me. But really, I can't wait till it starts snowing in here! I remember when I was a child my parents took me and my sister to school on the sledge. Good times.

  2. I can't quite *top* a snow dragon, but "the winter of '97" (it was classically cold and snowy) we made ourselves a snow dinosaur.

    However, that is fabulous. Topping. Brilliant.
    I love it.

  3. That IS a pretty dang epic snow dragon :D

  4. Awesome dragon! (Looks a little like a Snow Smaug!) Well done!

  5. Wow, you guys did an awesome job! Looks like so much fun.

  6. Hi Inna,

  7. Love the dragon! Looks like such a lovely day. I went somersaulting in the snow one time. That was awesome too. :)
