Neighbors Built A Snowman In A Horrible Spot, LOL! (Edited)

in photography •  19 days ago

It's been snowing pretty heavily here in Truckee, California for the last couple days. The perfect kind of snowball and snowman making snow. Not the easiest kind of snow to clear from the driveway as it stuck to the snowblower auger and I had to stop and clear it many times. The neighbors who are staying at the vacation rental home next door took advantage of the sticky snow to make this snowman.

Well... this is making me really wish I had a GoPro or some other weather proof video camera that I could leave there recording the snowman for a while. Why? Because this is a horrible spot to build a snowman, lol! The big snowplow that clears the streets is going to eventually hit this thing and make it EXPLODE! A car may hit it first as it is kind of hard to see when tons of snow is falling from the sky but my money is on a snowplow hitting it.

I'm sure I'll be checking on the snowman every hour or so. If, no when, it gets hit I'll post an update photo in the comments below, haha!

I hope you are all having a fun and safe weekend!

Sadly, the snowman did not make it... I missed getting a photo of it but the big snowplow took it out. RIP snowman!

oh no, snowman is gone, like he never been there at all.
maybe that was to show children that they need to stay out of the roads :D

Haha! Yeah, the adults might need a lesson too as they are the ones who built the snowman. I was concerned for them when they were working in the icy road. Cheers!

Lol .I agree with you, the snowman is doomed

·

Just checked on it. It's still alive for now!

·

There was no stopping it. The snowman is gone...

Lol Maybe a sign on the road "Stop" as it will prolong his life :)

·

So far it's working... It's still alive, lol!

·

Nope, didn't work. He's gone...

·

I called the Humane Society and they said there was nothing they could do for snowmen and that we have to let nature take it's course...

Poor Frosty. :(

He's gone... :( Snowplow got him. At least it was quick and he didn't have to melt over the course of a few days.

Alas. Perhaps it was better that way.

Maybe they want it to get hit

·

Sadistic neighbors... He got hit. Lol!

Oh yes @scottshots, great photo and you're right, it’s not safe to stand a snowman in such a place! Lol

·

Really, I was worried about the people when they were building it. Snowy icy roads aren't safe at all. Cheers!
