Giant New Brunswick snowman survives weather bomb

Monday, January 8, 2018, 5:57 PM - The Maritimes is shaping up to become Canada's premiere destination for oversized snowmen.

In February we met Chubby -- a larger-than-life figure that was created by three Halifax residents after back-to-back Nor'easters.

Now we have Frosty: A 2.5-metre high snowman who was built on a family's property in Acadieville, New Brunswick, two days before Christmas.

Frosty looks friendly but he's one tough cookie, standing strong and seemingly unaffected after a major storm tore through the area late last week.

Frosty is said to be attracting quite the crowd and has become a bit of a local celebrity.

The photos came to The Weather Network via Facebook. They were uploaded by Clorice Dorion. Her husband says he made Frosty in an effort to cheer her up, as she's scheduled for open heart surgery later this month.

We hope Frosty is putting a smile on her face.

Judging by the forecast, it looks like he could be hanging around for quite some time.

Take a look at Chubby: Last winter's giant snowman sensation:
