Woodworth: Making a good snow angel is all about timing
Can't believe we are not going to have measurable snow. Here is the art of making snow angels. First, get up early. The fresh snow will be less melty in the wee morning hours before the sun shines, so the edges of your silhouette will stay nice and crisp. Wave your limbs. After the standard jumping-jack motion, swing your legs together from left to right to prevent a snow pile-up in the middle. Depart divinely. Hug your legs toward your chest to get into a seated position, then place your hands gently within the angel and jump outside the border. I do not remember ever making a snow angel. Don't even think I ever saw anyone do it. Snowmen, yes. Every kid in town made at least one. After reading this how-to-do-it, I won't. I am the strange neighbor who lugs a chair off the porch and sits on the corner to watch meteor showers, or a lunar eclipse, but I am not going to be out in the dark rolling around in the snow.
