Snow is not exactly rare in central Kentucky, but it is rare to have enough snow for sledding or a good snowball fight. Snowmen tend to be muddy and full of dry leaves around here. When we do get a good snowfall, it is often accompanied by a sense of playfulness, some images of which have been passed down through the years.
