“Snowzilla” Rises Again In Anchorage

By Wyatt Earp | December 26, 2008


The resulting rampage killed 42 people.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A giant snowman named Snowzilla has mysteriously appeared again this year — despite the city’s cease-and-desist order.

Someone again built the giant snowman in Billy Powers’ front yard in an east Anchorage neighborhood. Snowzilla reappeared before dawn Tuesday.

Powers is not taking credit. When questioned Tuesday afternoon, he insisted Snowzilla just somehow happened, again.

For the last three years, Snowzilla — to the delight of some and the chagrin of others — has been a very large feature in Powers’ yard. In 2005, Snowzilla rose 16 feet. He had a corncob pipe and a carrot nose and two eyes made out of beer bottles.

This year, Snowzilla is estimated to be 25 feet tall. He’s wearing a black stovepipe hat and scarf. ()

Ya know, I would have been okay with the 16-foot tall snowman. 25 feet? Not so much. The damned thing could knock down low-flying aircraft now. Get a grip, Anchorage. Put the torch to Snowzilla.

Now, if it was built in the likeness of Sarah Palin . . .

    You Grinch!!! I hope it’s 30 feet tall next year.

    I love his excuse… huh… what snowman..?? Gee, how did that get there…?

    I’m still holding out hope for a Jessica Rabbit sno-babe, if only they could stack snow like that….

    That’s awesome. It would be better if it were true the homeowner doesn’t know who put it there.

    I can’t wait for our first measurable snow Wyatt… HA HA HA….
