This is me and my new friend Snowzilla. There's a man in Anchorage who has been creating this gigantic snowman every year and every year there is a big fight with the city telling him he can't do it, and then he goes and does it anyways. (one year it appeared overnight so his family and friends must have worked all night on it) It's kind of humorous and always gets lots of letters to the editor....people who think we should have the freedom to make a gigantic snowman in your yard if you want, and people who think it's a nuisance and could fall and cause damage and the city who calls it an "eyesore". Regardless of what everyone thinks, I went and had my picture taken by it. I'm on the side of the homeowner who can make a gigantic snowman in his yard if he wants to.
By the way, I cropped the rest of his yard out of the picture. It is an eyesore and probably why some of his neighbors protest the building of the snowman every year. Plus I guess it creates traffic issues on his street which the neighbors don't like either.
