"Tell me how you love her, Will." - "Like a sickness and its cure together."
My darling roommates have decided not to move out until June or July. Which means at least four more months of Graham Norton in our underwear, Derek telling me about DuWayne’s dragon battles on Skyrim that I’ve missed, scrabble nights with Grandma, DuWayne’s Winnie the Pooh giggle when he’s in a silly mood, and Derek’s Bob Dylan voice he uses to talk to my rabbit.
Basically another four months of my family. <3
Farmer Builds 50-Foot Tall Snowman In Central MN
POLIS (WCCO) — Between the biting winds and the snow storms, it’s been a tough winter to be a Minnesotan.
Central Minnesota is digging out of 4.5 feet of snow, and some people are running out of places to put it.
Not Greg Novak.
His farm is home to one of the bright spots this winter that’s bringing huge smiles to people’s faces.
“It’s a smile idea. Building a snowman isn’t original,” Novak said. “Building one this big is a little different.”
It’s a little different, and a lot bigger.
Novak created the snowman from snow that was crushing his green houses where he was starting to grow vegetables on his farm in Foley, Minn.
As he hauled away the snow, he decided he might as well do something with it.
Several friends and heavy machinery helped create a massive winter mascot.
The process took two months and involved a skid loader and silo blower to pile up the snow. As each layer froze, the fencing was moved up to create the next part of the snowman’s body.
“When he started building it, I was like, you’ve got to be kidding me, right? It’s huge!” Tyler Miller, Novak’s nephew, said. “It’s a lot of work. I wasn’t here a lot, but it was a lot of work, I give him credit.”
Fifty feet of snow later, the snowman, nicknamed “Grand Daddy” to honor the farm’s centennial year, is complete.
The snowman’s eyes are six feet tall by four feet wide. A 55-gallon garbage pail sits as a nose, and three 55-gallon lids are used for buttons. A 60-foot grain auger with branches tied on for hands was shoved through the middle to make arms waving to passing drivers.
“Every five or six cars that drive by are taking a picture or blowing their horns now that it’s done,” Novak said. “One of my neighbors picks his kids up from daycare every day and drives by because the kids want to know what it looks like.”
Haha only minnesota
