The Great Snowshark of Icepocalypse 2014

Snow Shark at Night

Oh, hey there, kids.  Since it’s 74 and sunny here, I’m probably not the best person to talk about the cold weather. But even I can appreciate a giant 20 foot tall shark made out of snow sitting randomly in a Minnesota front lawn.  Created by brothers Austin, Connor, and Trevor Bartz over the course of three and a half weeks, this shark may be the best thing to come out of this winter’s apocalyptically-named polar vortex.  Check out video and more pictures of the snow beast below or view the original post on Reddit.  And really, the weather might be warm in Los Angeles, but our sharks are more of the man-eating, airborne variety.  So I think you win this round, people of the tundra.

    We might get enough snow to build a piranha.
    I’ll work on that.

    I have no talent for anything snow related. Except shoveling. I can shovel.
