Florida in Frosty

Florida in Frosty
On page 49 of the book, there is a drawing of Frosty pointing at Forrest. Frosty's right arm makes a shadow of vertical lines. These lines seem to be a stylized Florida in reverse. If you don't see it, trace out the vertical line region under his arm and flip the paper over.

The "creases" in the shadow seem to be highways that lead to Tallahassee. (Highways 98, 319, and maybe I-10). Atlanta would be about the right distance to the start of the crease on his shoulder.

Frosty's shoulder strap for his apron is also a good approximation of the Mississippi river from St. Louis down to the gulf. If you simplified the river over that stretch you would get three lines that follow the three directions/bends of his strap pretty closely.

Next, the back of his around to the top seems to be Interstates, with the top of his head being I-80. His forehead has a funny zig-zag in it. This seems to correlate with the Omaha/Council Bluffs region.

The "2" in his ear seems to be around Independence, KS, but that's just a guess. I think there's more too, but I would need to overlay a transparent version of the image over a map. It is intriguing, though because of the way Frosty is pointing at something.

I've previously posted that the boys playing marble map out Idaho, Utah, and Colorado. I'm wondering if there isn't a way to assemble some of the drawings via a US map. I'm not good with Photoshop so maybe someone out there can do better than I in this regard.

In other news, I sometimes find that 10-letter words with double L's in them show up more often than I might expect.

Best of luck to all.
