Why is thy spirit so sad...? I Kings 21:5

A face of woe
Was deformed
By winter's snow.
Inside he stormed
With spirits low..

What he doesn't know
If there wasn't snow
This face of woe
Will lose its frown,
and come tumbling down
To be re-formed
Melting on the ground.

Poetry by me, AJP

We are having more blowing snow again today and tomorrow.... but in the meanwhile you got to find the humor beyond all of this snow and maybe inside of the snowbanks.

* I should explain I posted a different formation yesterday of a ladies face with a sheep head formation on top of her head..that one is a little prettier than the one on this page which is more like a cartoon character with a disgusted face...

Here is the link to the formation that I shot yesterday.


In the Natures snow formations photo essay.

    Oh my goodness.....such a grumpy fellow! I need to get outside and start paying attention to the snow formations we have; I'm sure I'm missing some amazing caricatures!!

    This is a very cool abstract Andrea! I don't know how you people up north stand the cold and messy snow for so long every year. You would have to be tough!

    Thank you all for the comments...This guy really looked down in the dumps and
    I guess I would too if I had to set my face in the snow:)
