During last week's blizzard, the air temperature was very cold. This colder temperature created very small snow flakes. Of course, since it was a blizzard, the flakes may have been tiny, but there were lots and lots of them. When this happens, as the snow piles up, it becomes very powdery. It is like jumping into sugar. The snow is resistent to packing. Good snow-ball-making is almost impossible and pulling a sled is like moving a car that is stuck in the mud.
Pete exhibits this powdered sugar phenomena, as he tries to pull Nicholas on his sled through the snow.
The sled refuses to budge
But Pete trudges on like a trooper...
Around the corner
A closer look.....
"Knock yourself out Dad, I'll just roll in the snow," says Weston
"Please Weston, a little help?" pleads Dad.
"Whaddya say Weston, wanna help?"
"Dad, I don't think this is gonna work! Ooops"
"Let's try again."
"Dad, why don't you try pushing from the back?"
"I know...let's get Muffy!"
"We're doing it!"
Muffy gets on the sled to show the gang how it's done.
