Let’s face it. Winter 2015 has been brutal. Snow. Snow. More snow. Ice. Freezing Rain. And then more Snow.

It’s gotten so bad, I’ve got Log Cabin Fever. I just want to stay inside til Spring and eat pancakes.

Part of me thinks climate change is responsible. While another part of me keeps hoping it’s just an overly ambitious post-movie campaign for Disney’s Frozen.

Disney’s Frozen and Winter itself have taken the country by storm. Literally.

If Mother Nature is going to wreak havoc with every aspect of your life this Winter,  remember some of the great advice our Moms used to give us.

No, no.! I’m not talking about when your Mom said,

“If you fall off that ladder and break your leg, don’t come running to me.”

I’m talking about when she said,

“If you can’t beat ’em,  join ’em.”

With that sage advice in mind, here are 10 examples of people who refused to let the snow and bitter cold get the best of them. Instead, they got the best of Mother Nature and Old Man Winter.

Venus de Milo

Sculpt some art. Hint: pick an easy Subject. Choose Venus de Milo not “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte”


Snoopy Ice Sculpture

“Hang on, Snoopy, Snoopy Hand On!”

Hello, Kitty!

Well, that’s all for now. This is just a short blog to warm up your winter. Stay tuned, though, because I’m halfway through my once-a-year look at Toy Fair. I’ll be revealing Einstein da Vinci & Goldenbergs 10 Best of Show Toys at Toy Fair 2015. You won’t want to miss this behind-the-scenes look at what will be the best toys under the Christmas tree.

It’s an event so big, I even had a noted Canadian artist create a logo for me. Here. I’ll show it to you.

This logo cost me $7000. I don’t think I overpaid, do you?

Thanks for checking out my compilation of the best Winter photos. I hope it inspires you to build your own snow sculptures, laugh at Mother Nature and Blow Off Old Man Winter.

One more thing. I kept Stan and Harriet off this blog because I found out Stan has been planing something behind my back. I don’t know exactly what it is, but if you hear about it first, please let me know.

Until the next time we meet, may your cocoa be hot and filled with marshmallows. Bye now.

STAN: Is he gone?
HARRIET: Yes, but I don’t think you should follow with what you’re gonna do. Jack will be furious.
STAN: I don’t care, Harriet! Keeping me off this week’s blog was the last straw! And I don’t want you to telling Goldstein or his Readers what I’ve got planned, you hear?
HARRIET: If you don’t want me to spill the beans that you’re planning your own blog, then I promise not to say a word.
STAN: Good. Let’s leave it at that.
