While most of the city hid from the rain by staying indoors on Saturday - Johanna Westby was busy building art pieces in the front yard of her Garson home.
"My daughter was getting quite restless in the house, so we decided to go out and build a snowman."
Being a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, Westby didn't want to make the typical Frosty-type snowman.
Instead, Westby managed to carve two sculptures out of the wet snow, a realistic woman figure and a large fish - which she painted using food colouring in a spray bottle.
"I started Saturday night after the rain stopped and finished on Sunday. It took me about six or seven hours."
Although it's her first time building snow sculptures, Westby has received tremendous feedback from neighbours who stop to take photos.
"It's nice to be able to put smiles on people's faces in January when it's such a depressing time of year," Westby said.
"I hope this will inspire others to create their own in their front yards. It would be neat to turn a neighbourhood into a gallery."
