50-foot snowman built by a farmer in Minnesota

With winter excess in the United States, a farmer in Minnesota wanted to pay his tribute to the never ending weather with a rather towering structure. Famer Greg Novak had to invest hundreds of hours of his time in this gigantic 50 foot snowman which has already been given a name ‘Granddaddy’. This is an attempt to wake everyone from the winter blues and will hopefully put everyone in a light mood. This 50-foot snowman shows the cheerful side of the prolonged winter in the country. And while the farmer was on work, he was surely scrutinized by his neighbors and most of them even thought that he had gone insane.

The 50-foot snowman wasn’t planned as such; it started to take its shape when farmer Novak wanted to move away the snow from his greenhouses. And about this the farmer says that "As long as you're moving it, might as well do something practical with it,"

Member of the family and also some friends extended their help to give shape to the ultimate Granddaddy and some even volunteered to look after the farm chores while Novak was busy building the snowman. Skid loaders were used to pile the snow and direct snow was stacked in cylinders with the help of a silage blower.

Gerald and Diane Harbarth were surely intrigued to see what Novak had created out of tons of snow and they drove all the way from more than 70 miles away from Brownton just to catch a glimpse of the Grandaddy. They had heard of the 50 foot snowman through news reports but the television screen certainly wasn’t doing it justice so they had to drive and see for themselves and this is what Novak had hoped to do.

"It puts a smile on people's faces," Novak said. "When people smile, you know you've done a good thing."
