In cases of severe snow: Build giant ball. Uses up the snow, see?
Continuing in the Men. What planet? theme, here is a conversation between me and the BFG to illustrate my point.
Whilst we were walking in the snow:
BFG: Check out that tree.
Po: Which one?
BFG: The one without any leaves.
Po: Sweetie, none of them have any leaves. It's winter.
BFG. Oh. (looks around at all the trees) good point. Ok, the big one.
I rest my case.
