The spirit of Calvin and Hobbes is alive and well in sunny Thunder Bay.
With summer finally settling in over the city, a seasonally challenged snowman made drivers stop, stare and start to giggle on Wednesday as they traveled down Balsam Street.
The snowman, made of white garbage bags stuffed with paper, wearing a small bowler and adorned with an orange carrot-style nose, is holding a sign that says, “I am invincible,” uttered with a huge smile.
In April a similar snowman, this one made of real snow, appeared on the corner of Balsam and Margaret streets, then holding a sign proclaiming, “The end is near,” as the snow melted around him.
Kristie Kennedy laughed so hard she had to stop and take a closer look.
“I think it’s really funny,” she said.
“I was here when the first one went up and we were driving by and said, ‘Whoa, what’s that?’ So we got out and took pictures. This one, I thought it was the funniest thing, so I took a picture to show it to my mom.”
It’s nice to see someone in Thunder Bay has a sense of humour, she added.
“Especially with the weather we’ve had this year. It’s funny.”
