snowman giant-Flickr-CC-Marks Postcards From Beloit

A Minnesota farmer thought as long as he was moving 4 feet of snow using heavy machinery, he might as well have some fun with it.

Greg Novak used all that snow to build a 50-foot snowman that was so large it needed a full-sized oil drum for a nose.

He named the giant figure ‘Granddaddy’, and positioned it to face the highway running alongside his farm in Gilman.
