Behold the fuzziness -- if you can make it out in the blur of white. It looks like a pack of eyes and little black noses. Bichon Frise puppies are frolicking in snow of northern England. No Baltimore-area dogs have had a chance to do anything of the sort this year. Sad face.

Russell J. White, a retired trial attorney who won an acquittal in a nationally watched case in 1980 in which his client was accused of shooting boys throwing snowballs at his house, died of complications from dementia Wednesday at the Heart Home in Lutherville. The Mays Chapel North resident was 85. "He had a gift that can't be taught in a school. Russ had a wonderful way with juries," said his former law partner, Joseph F. Murphy, who went on to become chief judge of the Court of Special Appeals.

Just as the temperatures were about to soar into the 90s, Annapolis police said a city resident reported his snowball maker was apparently stolen. Police said Wednesday that a resident of the 1800 block of Robert Small Road came to the police station Monday to say that his Sno Master machine was gone from the locked storage room of his basement last Saturday. He had placed it in there in April. There were no signs of forced entry, and family members, who have access to that room, said they had no knowledge about a theft of the equipment, according to police.

The arrival of the American Ice Co. truck at the corner of Barclay and 29th streets was huge neighborhood news. It signaled open season for the snowball. A nickel cup of ice flavored with root beer, orange, lime or cherry could cut the drudgery of summer and work wonders during July's torture. Made just right, with a good shot of syrup, it remains the Baltimore pleasure of the dog days. Even though it was 1955, the ice truck looked like something out of a 1930s Warner Brothers movie.

It is a child's confection, of course. Crushed ice and sweet syrup in a cup. What could be more simple? Less adult? So maybe I am a child at heart, or in some advanced stage of arrested development. But here is the truth: I am hot for snowballs. Not just any snowball, though. No, the snowball I seek - texture of ice just so, flavoring generously and artfully applied, perfect - is elusive. It seems never to be where I last found it. So, in the molten height of summer, I make my rounds, eye out for some stand or storefront I haven't visited before.

The forecast calls for snow and ice. At least that's what Baltimoreans seemed to prefer in the blistering weather last week. When humidity pushes the heat index beyond 100 degrees, snowballs and ices provide sweet relief. Each year, hot new flavors cool crowds. Anika Cunningham, 25, whose pink hair and purple-rimmed eyeglasses could be modeled after a snowball split between cotton candy and grape, says she started working at Hamilton's One Sweet Moment snowball stand when she was 8 years old. The stand - more of a snowball rowhouse where customers crowd a carryout window on the porch - opened 17 years ago. Back then, the menu featured 14 flavors; customers can now choose from more than 100 regular flavors and more than 100 specialty flavors, many of which, Cunningham says, she created herself.

For a decade, Bob Adams' summertime cooler has been a strawberry snowball on a layer of soft vanilla ice cream. Not any more.This summer, the Anne Arundel County Health Department is enforcing regulations that require a snowball stand that also sells ice cream to be more of a restaurant and less of a shack.Those that lack hot and cold running water, sewer hookups and easy-to-clean walls, floors and ceilings can't sell ice cream.There are requirements for different kinds of freezers and other equipment, depending on whether the stand is serving soft ice cream or dipping hard ice cream.

Nobody batted an eyelash when the tall Englishman walked up to the Sno-Asis snowball stand in South Baltimore and ordered a large "raaahs-burry."The pronunciation wasn't exactly Fort Avenue and Lawrence Street, but snowball mixologist Tom Haynes knew what the customer wanted. He crushed a cup of ice and doused it liberally with raspberry red flavor."It's delicious," said David Bryan, the Herefordshire-born Baltimore snowball addict. He then ordered a few more snow cups for his friends at the General Ship Repair yard around the corner in Locust Point.

On the night seven years ago that Mark Waddell was first presented to the congregation at Catonsville United Methodist Church, a few members took their new pastor out to Tastee Zone for snowballs and ice cream. Tastee Zone has a fiercely loyal following, so it was not surprising to find Waddell and his daughter, Haley, there again last week, enjoying a caramel sundae. "The caramel here tastes like caramel," he says. "The caramel at Opie's tastes like butterscotch." In Catonsville, a town divided by snowball stands, there are two kinds of people: Opie's people and Tastee Zone people, and Waddell has just identified himself as one of the latter.

Nearly 3,000 miles from the red-bricked neighborhoods on the banks of the Patapsco, a Baltimore native is on a sugary mission to introduce Californians to the joy that is a little cup of flavored ice on a hot summer day. She's a one-woman Baltimore snowball outreach campaign. "I felt that the West Coast was missing out," says Katie Baum, a Maryland transplant in the Bay Area who a few months ago launched Skylite Snowballs, a mobile dispensary where she sells an upscale version of the treats with a free topping of Baltimore nostalgia.

Apparently not satisfied with simply grabbing a commanding early lead in the FedEx Cup standings, Mark Wilson might be going after "ironman" honors as well. Victories in Hawaii and Phoenix qualified Wilson's schedule for an upgrade, earning his first Masters berth as well as entries into two World Golf Championships events and the U.S. Open. Two of those had been weeks Wilson planned to take off. At the same time, he doesn't want to abandon tournaments he usually supports.
