Mokena family builds 15-foot snow giant

The blizzard that hit the Chicago area last weekend was one for the history books. The storm dropped nearly 20 inches of snow, forcing frustrated residents to do a lot of digging.

But one family in south suburban Mokena had a bit of fun with the snow this week. Denise Tamberlin's grown sons, friends and relatives built a 15-foot snow giant.

They used an upside down Christmas tree stand for a hat, two charcoal bricks and some scrap metal for the face and tree branches for arms.

"I was very impressed. I was shocked. They asked me to come out and look at the snowman, and I was like, 'OK, I'll come out and look at the snowman.' But it's like four snowmen!" Denise Tamberlin said.
