    Well with all the snow we finally got I was able to build a snowman. I promised my 6 year old daughter that this winter I would build a giant snowman. So today I did. I have been pushing all the snow that we get into the same spot all winter for the base. The last storm we got overe a foot so I plowed the street to so I would have enough. So this is what it looks like.

    great snowman...interested in the wing on plow. its a western right. Where did you get the wings. I've see aftermarket one that are at 30'degree angle but i want the straight one. more like a snow pusher
