Snow Art Is the Closest We'll Get to Being Banksy

We've spent the long weekend taking advantage of this winter's ever-present snow.

We've built tunnels...



...snowball defenses...


...snowmen...



...and even a snow village...



Over the course of the weekend, I've noticed people stopping to check out the various sculptures that we created.

This is one benefit to snow that never occurred to me during my many years in California.

Snow brings out the creative side in people and provides a showcase for their work (albeit, an ephemeral one).

For Valentine's Day, Kelly created a snow heart and placed it inside a tree. Soon thereafter, a number of people took a picture of it.

Her heart even wound up on the Roosevelt Islander blog.



It's like being a street artist, but without breaking the law.
