I became an official snow sculptor in the Winter of 1988. My daughter, Keely, asked me to sculpt a snow dinosaur. The year before I had made a snow bunny for Easter in the backyard. As I contemplated her request I tried to imagine a twenty foot snow tyrannosaurus Rex looming over the heavy traffic that passes our house. My T Rex was little more than an iguana. I was pretty embarrassed so I tried to improve my work by carving a stegosaurus beneath the iguana's jaws. You can see it didn't intimidate my daughter.

What follows are pictures of most of my creations over the past thirteen years. A few of these pictures are thumbnails. Click them and you can see a larger version.

Spring 1987

Bugs showed up in the backyard of our old house on a warm spring
day.  Keely remembered it when she put in a request for a dinosaur the
next year at our new house.

 Mommy and Baby Triceratops. We got a lot of snow this year.

A Tyrannosaurus Rex (not an iguana) Stared at the two
vegetarians on the other side of the steps.
