With the help of a silage blower, fenced-in silos, a 61-foot auger, and a 55-gallon barrel, Novak built a gigantic snowman, Granddaddy, that is 45 feet wide at the base and 50 feet tall, according to the St. Cloud Times.

Here's another image:

Wanna head up to the St. Cloud area and get a look at Granddaddy for yourself? The extended forecast indicates temps won't rise above freezing until the end of the upcoming weekend, so you've still got a handful more days before Novak's creation begins to go the way of the wicked witch.
