You Love to See It!

This is the kind of grandfather and grandson-relationship that any young boy could dream of, and you love to see it.

After much of the Capital Region got pelted with a sizable snowstorm on the first weekend of Spring, most were forced to dig themselves out, and some were left without power but most everyone found something to complain about as a different type of March "madness" hit the area.

Making the Most of a Spring Storm

Others, like this grandfather and grandson duo from Saratoga County, embraced the whiteout by doing what they do best, spending quality time together while building incredible snowmen -  that aren't even men, they're masterpieces.

Check out these pictures sent to WNYT NewsChannel 13 and posted to their Facebook page on Monday.

In them, you'll see the work done by 8-year-old Weston, who along with the help of his proud grandfather, built a massive snow gator on their property in Greenfield Center, which is about 5 miles north of Saratoga Springs in Saratoga County.
