The giant snow sculpture in New Brighton has been completed.
The Bartz Brothers build a sculpture on their front yard every winter. It looked like this a couple of days ago.
The brothers invited people to guess what it would be. If you guessed “octopus” you made a good guess.
People who visit this year’s effort on 16th Street NW are encouraged to make a donation to an organization that provides clean water to Haiti.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
