    The snow is melting fast in some places, and you probably want to race to enjoy it while you can. While traditional snow activities like making snow angels or writing your name can be fun, after a while, you’ll want a change of pace.


    And that’s why I’m here. After extensive experience in snow (I lived in Missouri when I was a pre-teen), I’d like to share with you some of the uses for leftover snow that have been tested and approved by the American Institute for Applied Fun.*

    2) Use to cover Bald Spots

    3) Refrost your Freezer

    4) Give someone in your home a lovely morning Shoe Surprise
