David G. from Schenectady shared with us his "blast from the past" snowman montage featuring his young friend and a snowman.
Devin, pictured below, was almost 3 years old at the time of these photos. David explained his "snowman model" to Devin as:
- Hands-on attention to detail
- Pride in a job well done
- "No more pictures!" (he was jealous of the attention his grandma was giving the photographer)
- Lament, four days later, on the ephemeral nature of snowmen
- Channeling the Schnectady - Sentinel Snowmen at the Gates
[see the Today's Snowman posting of February 8, 2016 for more about this story]
Thank you David for the snowy photos. David also wrote this very interesting post on the Suns Along the Mohawk blog about the Stockade Snowmen, and this past weekend's Schenectady's Stockade "Snowman At The Gates" Celebration, with an additional follow up article on the blog, "have we learned the lessons of the 1690 Schenectady Massacre?"
