This is a special edition of the Friday Funnies, dedicated to you folks in the 90 percent of the U.S. and elsewhere around the globe who have been experiencing way too much snow and cold weather this winter.  Here in Arizona it was 71 yesterday and that's in the mile-high-lands. Which may explain this teensy bit of gloating.

O.K.  Gloating over.  Now let me pay tribute to the amazing sculptural talent of those of you in "snow country".

That one is fantastic but I think this next one is my favorite.

And, of course, the Catalyst would be remiss if he didn't include a cat!

I commend all of the snow sculptors for showing a sense of humor in the midst of a terribly snowy winter season.  Special thanks to my East Coast correspondent for sending me the pictures.  And to the rest of you - - let these folks be your inspiration and, like them, keep on laughing!


  1. Mild here but not even close to Prescott.

  2. Amazing talent, the car being eaten is great, but my favorite was the most simple, the mail box.

  3. It just goes to show that there are many people out there with unheralded talent. Some of these snow sculptures are amazing.

  4. What phenomenally brilliant sculptures. The only problem with them is that, alas, they will melt.

  5. I like the first one. The others make me feel inadequate. I didn't even attempt a snowman this year.

    No, you had my at the first one. I am a long time Dairy Queen fan, only in Michigan it's called Whippie Dip by the lake.

    1. And in Stanley, North Dakota a drug store has had a soft ice cream machine for decades called Whirla Whip.

  7. Wow - those are pretty darn amazing! We're supposed to get MORE snow tomorrow - maybe I'll make something. Ha!

  8. In the wonderful words of John Prine:
    Humidity built the snowman
    Sunshine brought him down

  9. Some marvelous creations. As the old saying goes guess you have to "Grin and Bear it"
