Minnesota dad builds 20 foot snowman

A dad in Buffalo, MN decided to take advantage of the area's heavy snowfall to build his kids the father of all snowmen.

Eric Fobbe says he had a vision, a snowman that would literally dwarf every other snowman in the neighborhood.

Over the weekend, Fobbe used the tools he had at his disposal: a snow blower, a skid-steer and a good old fashioned shovel.

The result -- a 20 foot tall snowman that towers over his family.

The area is expecting close to another half foot of snow this week.
