“The wise skeptic does not teach doubt but how to look for the permanent in the mutable and fleeting,” so wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. There is nothing quite as fleeting as a snowman built on the surface of a frozen lake in mid-February, even if that February, and this winter, feels like it will never end - it will. For now, this snowman is one of Krodel Park’s curiosities. It has become a fishing buddy to anglers who have ventured out on to the ice, traversing a part of the lake that will be underwater when spring arrives - and it will arrive. Local fisherman estimate Krodel Lake has around three inches of ice on it at the moment and for the moment, the snowman is living a hearty life before he eventually has his meltdown and becomes a permanent puddle.
