Goodbye Snowzilla

After three years, Snowzilla‘s gone.

According to Anchorage Daily News, Municipal officials have put an end to Snowzilla– the16-plus-foot-tall giant snowman Billy Ray Powers built.

Anchorage enforcement officials claim Snowzilla has become a noisy nuisance to Billy Ray’s neighbors and poses safety hazards to admirers.

The popular giant snowman attracted plenty of sightseers–a favorite for photographers and camera crews from Russia and Japan. It was too big to use buttons for its eyes, so Snowzilla gazes over the neighborhood from beer bottles.

A few weeks ago, city code enforcers left three red signs at Snowzilla’s bottom body ball telling its builders to cease and desist.

Now, Snowzilla is just a big pile of snow rubble.

You can’t please everybody. I guess some of Billy Ray’s neighbors didn’t like all the cars and visitors.
