Photos of the Great Engineering Snowman  (December 29, 2002)


(Click on any of the thumbnails below to view the full-sized photo.)


The Great Engineering Snowman was constructed on December 29, 2002 by Devrim and Dave.  Because the snow was melting anyway, I estimate his weight at 300 lbs.--this was the densest snowman I've built.  Devrim doesn't have snow in her area of Turkey, so she has never built a snowman.  It was a new experience for her.

Below are pictures of Devrim, Dave, the Great Engineering Snowman, and a bodyless child.

These are closeups of the face.  The eyes and mouth are leaves, and the nose is a modified Starbuck's coffee cup.

Not too far from the snowman is one of the WSU kiosks.  Unfortunately, some vandal has done a little magic marker art on the kiosks and on one of the street signs ...
