In Arctic Circles

The things I do for cartoons eh?

So yeah, this morning we woke up to a rather fine blanket of snow, which is gone now. To savour the moment, and to take some time offline while my mother was away, I decided to take my camera and take a few shots in the park. Sadly though, by the time I really wanted to take a shot of a bit of snow that had absolutely no footprints, the camera battery went flat.

Hoping to pass time getting a little battery energy back, I decided to build a Snow Duckula. Using just my frozen hands and my front door key, I tried to make it look as much like Duckula as I could, until I realised that my camera wasn't going to start working again. So I had to take the snow model home.

Obviously I had to go inside for a little while to warm up, because I couldn't feel anything afterwards. I then went back outside to take photos of the model when I realised that I forgot to take my key! I could climb over the back gate, but it seemed way too dangerous, so my only choice was to grab some bricks and step on them to open the gate and get back inside through the back.

Then I went back out again to take the shot above, with my key in hand this time. It's probably melted by now...

If it snows again I'm gonna try and make another, more accurate looking model.
