snow-shark-minnesota.pngThe U.S. may be emerging from the clutches of a frigid polar vortex today. In addition to lots of snow and life-threatening temperatures, the weather system left a 10-foot-tall snow shark in its wake in New Brighton, Minnesota.

KARE11 reports:

Three New Brighton brothers took snow creation to a whole new extreme. Trevor, Austin and Connor Bartz spent 95 hours making this 10 foot snow shark in their front yard!

The brothers say they made a puffer fish three years ago, and creating a snow sculpture is an annual tradition. The fins and the tail alone took a total of 10 hours to create.

Check out the making-of video below. A rather dramatic video of the finished product is after the jump. Shark lovers (myself included) rejoice!
