A Minnesota man took advantage of the Midwest’s recent large snowfall and built a mammoth, 20-foot-tall snowman in his front yard.

Eric Fobbe, who lives in Buffalo, had to break out the heavy machinery to get the job done. 

“He used a skid steer (loader), snow blower, shovel and other miscellaneous tools to form the body,” wife Anastasia Fobbe said Monday, according to 1011 NOW. “The circles are made of wood that he cut, and spray painted black. He attached dowels to them to jam them into the snow. And the scarf is 5 yards of red fabric that was a tad too small.”

The Twin Cities area got hit with up to 20 inches of snow.
