Pat Shingleton: " Super Brown Frosty"
Don't be surprised if your friends and relatives in the "northern" extremes experience another episode of snow. There were numerous occasions that Easter Sunday in Western Pennsylvania included an Easter Egg hunt around snow drifts. In reference to the snow, on this date 27 years ago, Myron L. Ace and eight of his com-padres made the Guinness Book of World Records thanks to a big batch of wet snow. I guess with nothing else to do, these guys accessed a crane to pile eight inch blocks of snow in the shape of a snowman. This event occurred in Anchorage, Alaska. It took three weeks, in the cold, to finish the record setting snowman. Immediately after the huge snowman was completed, Anchorage was hit with a dust storm, driven by 70 mile-per-hour winds. Myron and his Band of Eight, originally named their masterpiece, "Super Frosty" and after the dust-up, it was renamed "Super Brown Frosty," replicating a sculpture of brown sugar.
