This Saturday, December 1, will mark the official end of autumn and the beginning of winter. Last year, dry and warm winter disappointed skiers, snowmobilers and winter enthusiasts. They have something to cheer about this week, as weather forecasts across the country promise snowier winter season than we had last year. Let it snow!
To mark the upcoming start of winter, let's "winterize" any famous paintings by adding snow to them and adding warm winter clothes to the characters in the paintings. Adding snow is a must, adding winter clothes is optional.
[ Utility crews worked overtime Saturday and Sunday to restore electrical service to thousands of customers still blacked out by the Midwest's first big snowstorm of the season. ]
Somewhere I've read that a snowstorm is God's way of saying "take some days off". I can understand that. But when this snowstorm knocks out power and turns off lights,
is it God's way of saying "take some days off and love thy spouse"?
In this contest you are asked to photoshop anything connected to a recent Midwest snowstorm and power problems. E.g. feel free to create advertisements for any Midwest businesses / services that adjust to snowstorm and power problems.
[ Canada's Niagara region & US western New York have been hit by a heavy snow-storm this week, cutting off electricity, and setting off a state of emergency in snow covered areas. ] If I learned something when I was a kid, it's that if you get lots of snow you can make a really cool snowman. And if you get a little bit more snow, you can turn your snowman into a nicely endowed snowwoman. Then you can turn your snowwoman into a snowman with huge snow balls. If you are a boy, you can also "write" your name in the snow. On the other hand, a heavy night snowstorm is God saying: "Take today off." So, lots of snow is a win-win situation for kids and for parents alike. Thus I don't get it why New Yorkers scream "Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow...Someplace else!!!"
In this contest you are asked to show what the show world would look like by making things, people and animals from snow. We are not talking just about snow statues, we are talking about any indoor or outdoor objects - e.g., laptops made from snow, snow-made food, cars, weapons, etc. Clarification: snow is not the same as ice - keep that in mind when making your entries.
