Just after Thanksgiving, Shane Boyle and his family, like many people enjoying the combination of snow fall and relatively warm temperatures, built a snowman, or actually a snow woman, and equipped her with a set of cross country skis.
When Boyle looked out this morning at where his family’s snow lady had been, there was just carnage.
Her body had been broken into three parts.
One of the skis was shoved into what used to be her bottom and other had been used to split her head.
“We were thinking that someone had some hostility,” Boyle said.
Apparently this sort of thing is not new for Boyle. In years past his family has had ornaments on their fence broken or stolen, pumpkins smashed and flowers trampled, but this was a bit much.
“The snowman was kind of over the top,” Boyle said.
His two kids, age 4 and 2, have apparently taken it well.
“The littlest one was angry for a while,” Boyle said. “Though he’s more focused on climbing on the couch now.”
