I became an
official snow sculptor in the Winter of 1988. My daughter, Keely, asked me to sculpt a
snow dinosaur. The year before I had made a snow bunny for Easter in the backyard. As I
contemplated her request I tried to imagine a twenty foot snow tyrannosaurus Rex looming
over the heavy traffic that passes our house. My T Rex was little more than an iguana. I
was pretty embarrassed so I tried to improve my work by carving a stegosaurus beneath the
iguana's jaws. You can see it didn't intimidate my daughter.

are thumbnails. Click them and you can see a larger version.
Bugs showed up in the backyard of our old house on a warm spring
day. Keely remembered it when she put in a request for a dinosaur
next year at our new house.
