Todd Resident Gets Creative With the Nearly Two Feet of Snow that Fell Across the High Country

The biggest snowfall that the High Country has seen for several years was a headache to many residents and visitors. For one Todd man, he took advantage of the the powdery white stuff that fell to the ground and built one spectacular Snow Santa. 

Lee Cahill lives on Railroad Grade Road in Todd and took the time to create this masterpiece over the last couple of days of snowfall across the area. 

If you need a lift into the Christmas spirit after being snowbound for the last few days, venture out to see the Snow Santa before he melts away. 

The photos below show the creation of the snowman that resembles Santa Claus. 

Lee Cahill is pictured here with his creation that he dubbed “Santa’s Final Stop.” “This piece of art is dedicated to all the people who won’t be able to make it home for the holidays, or be with loved ones. For the soldiers overseas, those who can’t afford to make it, those who are homeless or lost, those who have hardships, and for those who are no longer with us. Remember what the true spirit of Christmas is,” said Cahill. This Sculpture was a first attempt at anything outside of a traditional snowman, and took nine hours to compete. It was built for someone the artist dearly loves, and can’t be with for Christmas. He cut his finger while he was working on it, and after the blood dropped onto the sculpture, it magically took shape, like something else was helping him make it.
