So, I want to build a snowman.
I do not believe that I have ever done this, even on the rare occasions when I was at the same place as snow. These are supposedly the correct proportions:

except, of course, the spheres would flatten.

Is there anything else that I need to know?

Thank you very much! :)

Snowmen should be seen and not heard?

Humidity built the snowman, sunshine brought him down.

Where do you get the 1:2:3 proportion? It's in the Fibonacci series (:1,\;1,\;2,\;3,\;5,\;8,\;13,\;21,\;34,\;55,\;89) but you could go 2:3:5 or 13:21:34.

Roll at random so you don't get a cylinder.

From the article that I linked and 1:2:3 is in the Fibonacci Series.

It is better than 1:1:2! :)

All you need is motivation and wet snow. Dry snow won't work, which is what you get when it's very cold and the ground is frozen.

I believe you mean ".. a corn cob pipe, and a button nose, and two eyes made out of coal..."
Also there is no such thing as gloves too warm for making snowmen.

Gasoline Fumes, what kind of proportions are those?! :)

I am not counting on snow, in fact, I want to build this snowman indoors, so my kids can appreciate him.

I was thinking three of inflating punching bag balloons with Great Stuff and then painting it white. Great stuff often has a texture, but do you think it would be flat inside a balloon?

I could always spray it with some wall texture.

Now I find myself in a quandary. Carrot or button nose?!

I think Dave Ramsey would tell you to save your money to pay off the student loans and go build a real snowman when the opportunity arises.

I know. I wonder how many adults make poor financial decisions because children.
