Snowballs, shmmmo balls

I've been reading all these posts lately, in regards to how it's snowing everywhere. I'm constantly seeing pictures of snow laced trees, homemade snowmen, bundled up chitlins and long sharp icicles on gutters.

You see where I live there is no snow. So being the creative people that we are, we decided to improvise. I think we came up with the perfect solution to those of us who rarely ever see snow.

Introducing sand balls.

In my opinion, they're actually a lot better than snowballs. They are warmer and don't hurt at all when you get hit by them. Sand balls can pretty much be made all year round. No need for big ole, "I can't put my arms down," coats and cute hats with pom pom tails.



Word on the street is that they are edible too, just like snow. Though I'm not sure I'd eat one. You don't have to worry about "YELLOW" snow here people. Just crunchy sand particles. YUM.



I'm melting. Like snowballs, sand balls melt away. Be careful not to drop your sand ball in the water. You're likely to never see it again.

You've got to love sunny California, even in the winter.

Sand ball fight.

Grab a sandball and throw it at your favorite blog. Link them here so they can grab a sand ball and throw it.

Sandballs. HaHaHaHa. It really warmed up here lately . The snow is almost all melted and it almost reached 40! So we're still wearing the sticks your arms out coats. I wouldn't be caught dead in a hat with pompoms however. :)

Julia Writer said...

I'm in sunny California too. Sand balls are a great idea lol. My kids will love it!

Frugal Vicki said...

I'm thinking a sandball might hurt a bit more than a snowball does. Although a slightly frozen snowball hurts like a son of a gun!
