Of course, all snowmen are doomed to melt sooner or later, but this 8-foot (2.5 metres) high snowman on the corner of Laurel Crescent (to the right) and Pinewood Close (on the left) seemed to be surviving well despite the disappearance of most of the snow in the area, with an air temperature around plus 7 degrees Celsius.

The compacted mass of snow in his large bulk slowed down the melting process.
However, his fate was sealed two days after the photo was taken, when the property owner needed to access his garage, located behind the snowman.
