    Im currently at 36 hours with mine but it started off small

    Rules are

    You can add to it (fresh snow etc) but no freezer ice !

    Must be a family/solo event , village attempts not counted

    I think some will go 10 days , if big ,well sheltered and added to on thrus fri ?

    Just made mine, me and my mum did it, you can see a pic of him in the snow pictures thread :doh:

    Roughly about 6 foot tall, best snowman I have ever made before! I hope we get more snowfall so I can keep him topped up, I think he will thaw slightly tomorrow and thursday but overnight tonight the temp is due to get down to about -3 so I think he will be safe hehe.

    My NOman is lasting extremely well, so far this winter he has failed to be threatened and despite it being touch and go whether he would survive this weeks northerly, the models are now suggesting that it wouldnt be suprising if he lasted into the spring.

    last proper snowman I built was 95!

    Well with all the new snow I will be adding to mine (which is allowed)

    I figure (depending on next weeks temps) some may go 14 days + ?

    Im only at 72 hrs at present

    Last nights snow has helped and a hard frost should make him rock solid :) Will get a pic up later :)

    Friday 6th February 2009. Built my first, if not rather small snowman in about 10 years.

    Decorated it a bit with a scarf and hat and two uneaten pretzels for eyes

    And today, the sad thing that I have to announce is the meltification of my snow friend "Muddle" who is now just a puddle.

    Phil. :D

    Built mine last Monday (2nd), but there is still a fairly decent lump of snow all on it's own in the back garden :) (despite having 36mm of rain lashed on it!!)

    I think we now need a serious boost down here

    My snowman is a good 2ft square and was born on 2nd feb, hope the little fella makes his 2nd week birthday

    My little unofficially adopted family of snowmen in the park opposite the office is holding up well. These have mostly been there since Feb 2. I expect the last snowman back in Reading would have disappeared on Tuesday.

    Hi All,

    Love this thread....fabulous.....

    My snowman was built on 19th January and is still going strong..... In know I'm cheating with -28 degrees sometimes (not including the windchill), but I reckon this snowman will last a while longer as I think we may have a couple of snowstorms heading our way again next week as well as light snow over the weekend.........mind you yesterday saw a little melt as the temps got to 3 degrees and we had rain too.....but only made a small dent.

    Lets see if an ex pats can beat a true brits snowman...... :D

    TTFN

    I didn't make a snowman, but there's still plenty of snow left around here this morning.

    Not bad considering we haven't had any meaningful snow since Monday 9th.

    Bloody hell, you have lamposts there.

    Given the assurances received elsewhere at the start of the week that lot should remain for at least another two weeks.

    Of course. How else would all the visitors who come to marvel at the last village in England without streetlamps find their way about in the dark?

    None of us will be hear in two weeks' time to see if the snow still lies...we're all doomed I tell you.
