The welcoming displays inside the Corning Museum of Glass, located in Corning, New York. The lifesize glass snowmen are just one example of the many snowmen made from glass. You can even make your own snowman blown from glass. Did you know glass is shaped at 2300 degrees?

These are some examples of hand-blown glass from the Corning Museum of Glass located in Corning, New York. The "Gaffers" are the artisans who blow the glass into the marvelous shapes and colors seen here. Different color metals are added to the soft glass to make the different colors.

In Pennsylvania, this winter has brought some big snowfalls and some serious cold weather. The month of January saw many mornings with a below zero temperature reading. The snowfall on February 5 dumped 14 inches of snow in Troy. This little leftover from summer was poking up through the snow on the bank beside my driveway. I take it as a sign that summer will indeed arrive!
