    Here is what I have been Working on all winter. Its about 24' tall. Its getting alot of attention from all the news channels and papers around here. Lots of people stop and take pictures with it. Sometimes i can even get in my own driveway. Enjoy

    I just watched this the other day. It's pretty cool. It'll be a normal size snowman just in time for Halloween.

    Made me smile. That's cool.
    Not enough snow here in SE Alaska to make a snowball. In fact zero snow so far this year.

    That will look even better in a few weeks with some nice mowing stripes around it.

    That is really cool. I bet the kids love it. I got to ask, where the heck do you find a hat that big?What are you using for the corn cob pipe? Please keep posting pics as it melts over the next few months. You should get a poll going on how long that pile will be there. I say june 6th.

    The hat is 4" drain pipe. The pipe is a 5 gal bucket on a 4" pipe. I will post some melting pics this weekend.

    Sorry for the delay in the updated pics. He is looking pretty gross right now, but we still get people stopping to check on him.
