Four college students on holiday break built a 12- to 13-foot snowman in Hudson Jan. 8. The group included Bryce DuCharme, Justin Tersteeg, Ryan Reiter and Jameson Krause. The four spent six hours building this giant. The base was made of 15 giant balls that took three men to roll them. The next layers were made from rolling more giant snowballs and then breaking them apart to bring them up to the higher levels where the men reassembled them. They finished the project at about 10 p.m.
