17. Miniature Snowman. February 18, 2010.

Together with some friends from across the street, we built a rather large snow fort in our front yard. Most of it came from chunks of snow and ice that the kids loaded on to sleds and pulled across the street. It was quite the process.

As the weather got better, someone decided to make this snowman and put him on top of the fort wall - he was only about 8 inches tall.

One day, I came home and noticed the snowman's south-facing parts were beginning to melt. I grabbed a few shots. The next day, he was gone.
