    Wonder if his inspiration came from the recent rerunning of the Calvin and Hobbes strip with the snow monsters surrounding the home.

    This guy and the trash heap from Fraggle Rock should get together.

    My solar lights worked quite happily with snow over them. Once it got thin enough and they could get a charge, they glowed all night. Quite lovely.

    I creatively dispose of my excess white stuff too, but for some reason nobody ever posts about it.

    Humongous? It looks like it’s barely up to his car window! I can look outside my window and see a pile of snow that’s twice as tall as I am.

    It looks a bit more like Sergeant Schlock, but it’s not green.

    Back in my day, The Humungus wore a hockey mask and neck brace, and spoke through a police bullhorn.

    Making snowmen (or snow in general) glow is an easy thing to do. You just need a 3V coin battery, an LED light, some tape, and a little plastic bag. Stick the mixture in snow and you have glow.

    If you’re really brave you could wire up a solar circuit to a snowman, one that was dark detecting. Easier than most people think.

    I know http://www.instructables.com has a whole lot of little LED projects that would spice up a snowman. (Search for LED Snowies for example.)

    I for one am waiting for Wisconsin to get some snow this week… just to test out such a thing… I’m thinking blinking red snowman eyes…

    Creative snow disposal *and* he wrote “In the Drift.” Truly, a Renaissance man.

    Ha! :D That’s awesome. What did he put in there, I wonder? Candles or flashlights?

    My friends once made something in the same spirit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cefeida/3285442238/in/set-72157613892391631/
