I dunno, sometimes I think the Actual Climate is trying to out-bizarre the Political Climate. An apricot Pol Pot rules the free world while the teen magazines, dictionaries, and national parks take up arms against him; last week I was in a t-shirt, today I’m in snow to my hips.
I don’t want to talk about that first thing. Let’s talk about the snow! And all the rad bookish shapes you can make with it.
Ok well maybe not you. Not me, anyway. Some of these are BEYOND. I wish I could find a better picture of this Charlotte’s Web barn because LOOK AT IT OMG.
This Buckbeak is fucking majestic.
Fantasy books lend themselves well to ice sculptures, especially when the entire premise of the series is that Winter is Coming.
Holy shit it’s a direwolf.
This Wizard of Oz troupe is so SHINY.
A snowy Alice, having a rest.
Couple of bears, making some porridge preparatory to having their house ransacked by a blonde intruder.
THAT IS SOME OVERGROWN GOLLUM.
What snowy feet you have, granny!
If you’re feeling ambitious with your piles of snow (we got our entire annual average snowfall in a single day this week GLOBAL WARMING AM I RIGHT ha ha *laughter becomes tears*) wait what was I doing. Oh right. I have a soft spot in my heart for the more homegrown-looking snowbeasts. Look at this adorable Gruffalo!
Apparently a Snowpy is really easy to make? I dunno, I just know that I found a lot of him.
Lookit, this Totoro has buddies.
Get you some spray paint, make you a Lorax.
Somebody just whipped up this Cat in the Hat in their backyard!
Likewise this Falkor!
Hello Gandalf and also dog!
Reproducing Calvin and Hobbes panels FOREVER.
Are you doing anything bookish with your snow?
