King of the Snow People

You might have noticed: There's a lot of snow outside.

Most of us shovel the walks and do our darnedest to ignore the rest of it. But did you ever wonder: "Hmm, what could I be doing with all this snow?

Here's your answer.

Big snowman.

Spotted on Brookline Ave. in Albany. Well, maybe "spotted" isn't the right word -- more like "gaped at" or "cowered under."

The creator of this colossus is local artist Jason Schultz. Jason works in a variety of media -- metalwork, painting, carving. And snow. He builds a mega-sized snowman every year.

Just think: Your yard, too, is an unassembled snowman. Get to it.

My husband built a snow fort with turrets and a flag. We do not have children. He claims it's for the dog, but I'm on to him.

That.Is.Awesome.

Love it!

Anyone remember the giant snowman from the tall house on the corner of N. Manning & Main in Albany? The house that juts out as if it's on a peninsula? This would be in the 70's & 80's for you wee young'uns.
