Beware of Snowmaggedon!

Last week it snowed a fair amount in the Pacific Northwest. Here in Seattle, citizens were all but losing their minds, stockpiling food and survival supplies, and fearful of leaving their homes. As someone who comes from a place that sees a lot of snow, it’s a little funny. But now serious snow is hitting states all across the country. This terrified LEGO snowman, built by Joseph Grysban, may not be built for this purpose, but it’s the perfect mascot for Snowmaggedon.

The Frantic Snowman

Other than the look on his face, the best part of this build is that he’s motorized and runs away from the snowballs! A pair of Power Functions L motors and a battery box are perfectly hidden inside his body. Additionally, the snowballs don’t just drag behind; instead, they roll around their center.

Snowpocalypse  jokes aside, we realize that these storms have been very serious and scary for thousands of people. We hope those of you who have been affected are safe and we wish you a swift return to normalcy. Hopefully you were at least able to get a good amount of building done while stuck indoors!

Mixing the Christmas spirit with a dose of the peculiar

When a model blends a host of tropes in the way Delayice does in this Xmas build, it sometimes ends up subverting the original theme. Maybe it’s me, but this snowman dressed as Santa has a weirdly uncanny quality–in fact, it’s almost creepy.

Maybe it’s his double whips, clutched in each hand, or then again it might be his glazed eyes, or even the mechanical looking reindeer pulling his tiny sleigh. There’s a thin line between the cute and the strange, and this unique creation brilliantly drives down that line.

Tragic end for a snowman

It’s a tough world right now for a snowman. Is anyone forecast for snow tomorrow? Rocky Mountains, put your hand down. We’re talking about everyone else, who are going to experience the great joy of a warm, sunny Christmas morning. As a former Florida resident, I’m so, so sorry.

Also, please someone tell Dorothy that tornado season might not be over.

I could never quite get behind a Florida Christmas, and this snowman very clearly couldn’t either. Fortunately, Earl Ware was on hand to capture the snowman’s fate.

Another tragic end for the Florida snowman.

Someone might want to tell Olaf.
