In the winter put snowballs in your freezer for the summer

Monkey holding a snowball saying, "I got a snowball right here for your freezer!"

It’s summertime and temperatures in Chicago are getting around 100 degrees. It would be so much fun to have a snowball to throw at someone right now. So next winter, I want to pack like six snowballs and keep them in my freezer for the next summer. I added this to my 43things to do list.

Just merely sticking a few snowballs in your freezer might cause a problem, cuz what if they melt? Water everywhere! Deni H had this comment on someone’s 43 people page:

Make some and wrap them up in plastic wrap and put them in a freezer bag. Then put the freezer bag in the freezer.

You probably couldn’t keep a snowball around that long if you had a frost-free refrigerator | freezer. My advice would be to pack them tight and then wrap them in plastic wrap and foil and then store them in Ziploc freezer bags with as much air removed as possible.

I’m such an idiot … I didn’t even read the entire post and there is Deni’s comment about storing snowballs. Just delete me. What a moron

Well, i think Deni mentioned the freezer bag only as a way to prevent the snowball from making a mess if the freezer broke down… which really… if the power went out for a long time, the last thing in my fridge that I’d be worrying about is a snowball that melted. I’m more concerned about my freezer turning my snowball into an iceball. Tom, your post was made with the intention of keeping the snowball as a snowball rather than turning into an iceball. I suppose the theory behind keeping a snowball as a snowball would involve removing all air from the device holding the snowball in the freezer. I’m sure someone has figured this out already.

Then there’s the old Bill Cosby routine about how he put a snowball in the freezer so that in summer he could pelt his nemesis Junior Barnes. When the fateful summer day arrived, Mom had thrown out of the snowball.

I did this once when my kids were younger. You do have to put them in Ziploc bags and get as much of the air of out it as possible. They get a little hard, but it was fun to have snowballs in the summer.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
