A Snowperson Named Alan and a Very Manly Snowman

We saw two interesting snowpersons around Borderstan this evening that you should check out tomorrow.

The first, a snowperson named Alan, is in front of Jack’s Restaurant, 17th and Church NW. It’s attracting many visitors (I first saw it on a Facebook friend’s Wall) and has taken on a somewhat shrine-like appearance and quality. I particularly like the accessories—a fruit hat and an umbrella with lights. Alan’s creator is Giovanni, who works at Jack’s; Alan was named for another employee at the restaurant.

The very-manly-snowman is on the front plaza of the Scottish Rite Masons temple at the southeast corner of 16th and S Streets NW. No idea on who created this snowman. The broken snow shovel as hat is a nice touch… as are the use of beer cans.
