You can tell it's a slow day in Erie. This was a monster snow of Feb 12, 2014. I was standing on a nine foot drift for this photo. This is my hand made copper ... Whirly Gig One [with a 22 inch wing span]. It had a 4 prop [propeller] till it crashed during a thunderstorm 10 years ago when the wind lifted the plane off of the tube it spins on. Safe guards are now in place so it can't lift off
