Evolution of a Snowman

After one particularly large snowfall, a friend and I decided to make a snowman outside of our apartment building. As he slowly melted over the next week or two, he went through several transformations.

Next morning
The morning after he was made. During the night, someone moved him several feet to the right and put clothes on him. He even has a shirt and hat and an umbrella to protect him from additional snowfall. How fancy!

A few days later

After he lost his head, his upper torso became a replacement head. He still seemed somewhat snowman like to me at this point. Unlike American snowmen, who tend to be made of 3 giant snowballs, Japanese snowballs are made of 2. So, this snowman was just turning Japanese.

With only one piece of snow left, our snowman no longer had a body. He looks a bit sad, doesn't he?

Okay, I'll admit that this picture is from a totally different place on a totally different day, but look at how much snow we got! Or, this different place got on this different day.
