Needing to move snow away from his greenhouses, a Gilman farmer named Greg Novak got creative.

With the help of a silage blower, fenced-in silos, a 61-foot auger, and a 55-gallon barrel, Novak built a gigantic snowman, Granddaddy, that is 45 feet wide at the base and 50 feet tall, according to the St. Cloud Times.

Here's another image: Wanna head up to the St. Cloud area and get a look at Granddaddy for yourself? The extended forecast indicates temps won't rise above freezing until the end of the upcoming weekend, so you've still got a handful more days before Novak's creation begins to go the way of the wicked witch.

Sorry, the guy that won winter got arrested using a flamethrower to melt his snow!

Some friends of mine just went to see this this past weekend...the pics they have of them standing at the base of it make it look gigantic (and, well, 50 feet tall IS a gigantic snowman)!!

Anything with "50 ft" and "erect" in the title is the BIG winner

No, if it were on fire he'd have 'won at winter'.
