A time machine for a snowman

Red sticks were placed in the yards in the beginning of the winter last year, as usual, so that the snow plows know how to move around the corners and bends. They were not needed once this winter. Of all the snow of the whole winter, onne could probably have built one big snowman, like the one in the old photo. Children would have been happy if it could have been moved by a time machine.
