The Great Humongous Snow Pile in the Back Yard

.


It's night.  I'm done shoveling.  I can go indoors and relax by the wood stove.

Knowing that the snow is outdoors, plotting against me.

Shoveling a city driveway and your backyard... The same way we do here these days.

What a terrific taste of Real Russian Winter you can absorb and smack now!

We shamelessly copied your idea, thanks for the great inspiration! Link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chrisdag/tags/snowbankmonster/

I like that a lot. Particularly the first shot.

Hi Michael,

One of our readers saw your snow monster photo and was inspired to call on city residents to make similar ones. Would you allow us to use the photo, so people can see what she means? We’d like to run it today: Feb. 2.

Yes, absolutely. And so may anybody else.

If you mention that I'm a science fiction and fantasy writer, that would be appreciated. But not required.

We had to create our own. I don't think we live up to the original. The lumpy-ness just can't be beat.
