Some parts of the country have had more-than-enough snow this year. The recent storm that dumped on the Midwest made snowman making easy. The couple in this story built a massive snowman, a proud frosty sculpture that stands 9 feet tall. The oversized snowman was more than one vandal could stand.

The identity of the would-be hit and run driver is still unknown. The scene of the crime, though, suggests it didn’t go as planned. The snowman, built by Cody Lutz and his fiance Lucy. Lucy’s sister was visiting from Mississippi, where snow is scare, so they were making the most of the storm.

“We were playing in the snow, she’s from Mississippi so this is the most snow she’s ever seen in her entire life. I’m from Buffalo so this is no big deal,” Lutz said. “I love the snow!”

While you couldn’t see it when the snowman was finished, the beast is built on a massive tree trunk.

“After returning from work on Monday, Lutz found tire tracks through his yard and leading into the base of the snowman. Lutz believes someone tried to spoil their winter fun by running over the towering snow sculpture but got a rude awakening when they hit the stump,” NBC writes.

“Instant Karma!” Lutz told reporters. “It’s hilarious! You know, what goes around comes around, in good ways and bad ways. So, I guess everyone learns a valuable lesson here from Frosty.”

The stump showed the attempted destruction. Some snow had been knocked away. There were tire tracks up to the stump, too. In the compressed ice on the stump, the indention of the bumper is clearly visible.

Since the attempted toppling, the story has gone viral. While many are reveling in the karma of the incident, the perpetrator is likely embarrassed. He (it would be a he, right?) is also likely to be the laughing stock of his friends, as this isn’t the type of prank you pull when you’re alone.
