Millions of Snowflakes

Now I know why the Inuit have so many names for snow.  My favorite so far this winter is the powdery stuff that can be shoveled easily, but when I was a kid it was the heavy snow that snowballs are made of, and were essential for snow forts. I  illustrated Millions of Snowflakes in the summer, which was a little confusing.  My model, Charlotte, was dressed in a snowsuit in the 90 degree heat but didn’t seem to mind a bit.  We blew soap bubbles to get her attention.  Now, in this snowiest of winters I am doing a book about sunny Pakistan.  I’m frequently surprised when I look out the window and instead of blinding sunshine I see my snow-buried yard.  OK going to find my mukluks and clean off the car… again.
