As I was returning from a short walk round town and a trip to the supermarket I encountered these two young girls. At first I couldn’t believe what they were doing – surrounded by snow they seemed to be transporting a large snowball on their sledges. Why? Wouldn’t it be easier to make a snowball nearer to home? (The thought occurred to me that if they rolled it then it would have been huge by the time they got home, but practical experience tells me that wouldn’t be possible.) Maybe they were planning an Andy Goldsworthy art project, but no, it turns out the area they made it simply had better snow to make a large snowball from and they were then taking it home. Obviously.
