Even the snowmen are doing cartwheels!

cartwheeling snowmen

Temperatures in Northern Illinois are treading into the 40s (the 40s! Really!) this week, and even the snowmen are so overjoyed they’re doing gymnastics. That, or they’re inspired by the Olympic freestyle skiing moves on display in Sochi.

This snowman was cartwheeling over the snow bank across the street from my house; the children over there are clever engineers. That’s the mailbox there, buried in five feet of the white stuff. This snowman doesn’t even care he’s lost his arm and nose in the melt — can’t you see the smile?

Oh. That’s me smiling.
