Michigan Tech Broke A World Record Building 2228 Snowmen, Still Has Tons of Snow Leftover
What do you do when you go to school in the snowiest place in Michigan? Michigan Tech students just broke a world record creating over 2200 snowman in an hour.
The Houghton school, at the tippy top of Michigan in the Keweenaw Peninsula, already has students who dogsled to class. Now students and community members gathered recently to break the snowman world record.
TV 6 & Fox UP reported,
The previous record was 2,036 held by Japan. Michigan Tech beat that record with a total of 2,228. Snowmen were required to be at least 3-feet tall, and also have eyes, nose, and arms.
The event, "Snowman Left Behind" was hosted by the Undergraduate Student Government and the Memorial Union Board. Hundreds of students and community members showed up to help make this record possible.
Living in the snowiest place in Michigan with some of the country's most unpredictable weather, it was no surprise that the home of the Huskies now owns a snow-related world record. While the world record attempt is over, there's certainly tons of snow left over for you to head to Houghton to build one of your own.
