Snowman in Alabama?

Alabama Snowman, 8 x 10
I love snowmen, but I've seen very few in my lifetime. The last big snow that I remember was in 1993. My husband and I were living in a mobile home with no underpinning, and at around 5:00 AM he woke me up and told me we needed to get to his parents' house. We had no heat and I stepped onto the floor and it felt like ice. We had a peek-a-poo dog, and when we opened the back door she ran out and sank into the snow. It was hilarious. I painted this painting for the Christmas exhibit at the Gadsden Museum of Art. My daughter insisted that I put a hat on him... but I liked him the way he was...
