"From Frosty to Super Frosty"
Folks are battling cabin fever in Danville, Vermont and a handful of residents combated winter doldrums outside their back door. Last weekend a 15-foot "Frosty the Snowman" was constructed in three hours; fashioned with oversized twig arms, beef jerky cans for eyes and a Brillo pad mouth. Add-ons are expected. In March of 1988, Myron L. Ace entered the Guinness Book of World Records by constructing a 63.5 foot snowman in Anchorage, Alaska. Myron's giant sculpture was finalized with the assistance of eight friends, one of whom was a skilled crane operator who lifted 8-inch snow blocks to shape the snowman. Named "Super Frosty" it took three weeks to complete, then the city was hit with a 70 m.p.h. dust storm that turned the masterpiece into "Super Brown Frosty."
