About the only snow left in this yard is in the form of game character Super Mario built by Tony Holter at 701 14th St. N. in Moorhead, Minn. The sculpture, which took about 12 to 15 hours of work, was created about two weeks ago. Warm weather has melted away almost all of the food color Holter used to colorfully finish the character. If the warm weather continues, Old Man Winter may not need a leap day to break an old record.

The 44th day occurred on Leap Day, Feb. 29, which is coming up again at the end of this month.
