I don’t remember Jabba the Hutt visiting the ice planet Hoth

Duluth hit the front page of Reddit this morning thanks to a snow sculpture of Jabba the Hut.

The sculpture is one of the many made by Harry Welty every winter. Harry was interviewed by the website Perfect Duluth Day last month to explain how every snowfall makes Duluth a little less dull.

Because I work in the open next to streets with 30,000 or more cars passing by each day my chief reward are horn honks of approval and catching people slowing down to take pictures. There is nothing more gratifying than having a school bus pass by with little faces pressed against its windows.
