Giant snowman.

B.A. Snowman

For the past few winters, Vern Scoville (my father), has been creating huge snowmen. With the help of friends, family, and some farming equipment we build a 35-foot-tall snowman each year. This year's snowman was built on 12/29/12 and will last for the winter -- only to be rebuilt the following winter.
