I’ve lived my entire life on the East coast in areas which means snow is part of my life. Thankfully even when I have to shovel it I still enjoy it. Of course, during any snow storm comes the snowball test, and if you’re lucky once or twice per season there exists the perfect snowball snow. Usually the temperature has to be 30-40°F which means that it’s not too wet that it soaks your gloves, but sticky enough that if you just grab a fistful then it’ll be a snowball when you open your fist.

It takes tremendous willpower to not just dive into a pile of snow and immediately start making snowmen during this relatively rare occasion. It happened maybe a week ago but it was kind of late at night. In retrospect I should’ve just done it then and there. There’s still time though, I remain optimistic.
