Two Mercer students have admitted to being the clandestine snowman builders
Feb. 4 snowstorm. They are photography major Alex Bowe and art student
John Andrews. Alex and John hatched the plan via instant messaging at
around 9 p.m. that night. Originally planning to make the snowman at Mercer
County Park, they decided instead to build it on the edge of the college's
West Parking Lot, where lots of people would see it. Their snowman featured
croquet mallets for arms and croquet balls for the eyes and nose. If weather
and time allow, the students are hoping to build more before the winter
is over. Stay tuned!
