25 Foot Snowzilla Appears In Alaska Again

December 25, 2008

Alaska (ChattahBox) – The annual feature ‘Snowzilla’ has once again appeared in Anchorage, Alaska, after a cease and desist order attempted to ban the 25 foot snow man last year.

Billy Powers and his seven children have built Snowzilla for the last several years, and what started as an impressive 10 foot Frosty has grown each Christmas, causing neighbors to complain, and Powers to be ordered to discontinue the project.

Powers denies creating Snowzilla this year, insisting that he just appeared, and that he and his family was not responsible, although he does say that the giant man of snow is quite handsome in his stove hat. But city officials don’t believe his claims, and they are far from amused.

“This property owner has repeatedly ignored city attempts to find ways to accommodate his desire to build a giant snowman without affecting the quiet, residential quality of the neighborhood,” Mayor Mark Begich said in an official statement. “This is a neighborhood of small homes on small lots connected by small streets. It can’t support the volume of traffic and revelers that are interested in Snowzilla.”

The Mayor’s office has issued no plans for further action until after the holidays.

    I take my kids to go see ‘Snowzilla’ every year. It has become part of our yearly tradition…. Drive the roads of Anchorage on Christmas eve, look at the lights, check out all the decorations (private homes and city sponsered). go see “Snowzilla” then head for home and make snow-icecream… and get the kids to bed before ‘Santa’ arrives.

    Kudo’s to every one involved with Snowzilla. Its ‘OK’ to drive the streets to look at lights, but it’s not OK to give Snowzilla a drive by????? What is the difference. Anchorage news casters praise the festive lights that abound in our fair city. Some news casts even give directions to the displays of lights and decorations… what is the difference with ‘Snowzilla’???? It is about as green and enviromentally friendly as you can get. Lights burn electricity, displays are made of denon plastic created from chemicals and crude oil…. Long Live Snowzilla!!!!!

    Lights, decorations, and “approved” public displays seem to be acceptable to the
    secular progressive loons. Build a 25 foot traditional AMERICAN snowman, and that goes against their agenda; big time (zilla). Many of these nuts, who don’t see past their liberal college professors, end up in the media. I hope Mr. Powers puts a cross and menorah in Frosty’s hands next year and drives them even more batty.

    Thank God the majority of us are like Mr. Powers. Long live frosty!!!

    Sounds like Anchorage is becoming part of the Northeast US. Sad.

    Mr. Mayor Mark Begich … I say this “BAH HUM BUG!!”

    It’s his property. He can build anything he likes and it is no one else’s business. I think the neighbor that complained needs to be hauled in on some made up nuisance charge instead of Mr. Powers.

    BTW, did you see the snowmen carrying picket signs that someone put out front of city hall? It was hilarious.

    Imagine if everyone created a Snowzilla!?! Gads, these monstrosities could form themselves into a formidable army of 25 ft. snowmen! Eeeeeek! We’d never stand a chance! We’d just have to hide out & pray for an early summer!

    I for one will welcome our new Snowzilla overlords. For the love of Pete, I suggest you do the same.
