Pat Shingleton: "Super Brown Frosty..."
Playtime for those locations that receive a dumping of snow include sledding, skiing and snowman building. We could experience a few snowmen and women in Louisiana today and in March of 1988, Myron L. Ace entered the Guinness Book of world Records by constructed 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 by an unusual storm that created another interesting weather feature. Anchorage was blasted with a dust storm and 70 m.p.h. winds that turned the 63 foot masterpiece into "Super Brown Frosty."
