30-Foot Snowman Stands Guard in Minnesota

Have you ever pulled that trick where you made a perfect snowman that's around ten inches tall and took a close-up picture to post on social media? That's why redditors demand a "banana for scale" whenever the size of something is questionable. That wasn't required for this snowman, because they already have a house for scale!

Eric Fobbe of Buffalo, Minnesota, built a snowman that's 30 feet tall and 20 feet across. He gathered up snow from all around the neighborhood and used a snowblower to pile it up. Fobbe says the snowman needs daily maintenance, with extra snow added anytime he starts to shrink. This is not Fobbe's first giant snowman. He's been building them for four years, and every year the snowman is larger. This year's snowman is so big he has a traffic cone for a nose! See a video report on the snowman from the local news station. -via TYWKIWDBI
