Making the most of spring snow.

We had another blast of snow today.  One nice thing about snowfall in April is that it is relatively warm (+2C) and the snow is extra wet.  This makes for great snowball making as it sticks together very well.  As I was waiting for Luke after school I started to roll a small ball with my foot and by the time he got out it had grown to be a fair size.  Well the kids who live close by (the others had to catch the bus or their rides home) got into it and start making their own snowballs.  Those around were mostly grade 1's but they had great fun and did a great job working together to roll the snow.  In the end the wall they created was close to 45 feet long and consisted of 23 snowballs.
