Camillus man builds â??grape apeâ?? snowman

"Grape Ape" snowman in Camillus

A Camillus man has come up with his own unique snowman design much to the delight of his neighbors.

Rick Prahl created what he calls his "grape ape" in his Camillus front yard.

Prahl says it took him two days to build his creation. This is the eighth year he has built a snowman at his Colony Circle Drive home.

He got an early start this year and says there is a chance he could build another one before the winter ends.
