    That Mysterious Snowglobe



    So this is what's behind the snowglobe and I don't get it. It looks like it's an air conditioning unit, and it's running constantly. The snowman still doesn't do anything and I'm pretty sure it's not made out of real snow, so I wonder why they're doing this. The back of the snowglobe is open as well and there's no heat being created inside so I don't see why it would fog up either if that's what they might be preventing.

    Hmm, it does look like an air conditioning unit.

    Weird. I really don't know.

    Re: That Mysterious Snowglobe

    Is it one of those inflateable snowglobes? I never got close enough to see it a week ago. If so it might just need some extra UMPH to get it inflated. Or the fan they had might not have been strong enough to keep it up???

    If they're trying to keep it from fogging up with an a/c its probably not gonna work. The air inside is probably all moist from the rains we had and water got inside. Hard to get it free of moisture without eliminating the moist air trapped inside.

    All speculations on my part.

    It almost looks as if someone's supposed to be inside it...that's why they'd need ac/ventilation. It's also got a big rope cordoning it off from the crowds, which certainly doesn't seem necessary.

    Maybe that's one of the "dream" prizes -- you get locked into a giant snowglobe for the day!

    It's not an inflatable snowman. The KTLA people did a little thing taking pictures inside there but that wouldn't warrant nonstop air conditioning. Like I said there's a big hole in the back and it shouldn't be that warm inside.

    The "snowman" is really Walt Disney in disquise.

    They need the AC unit to keep him fresh.

    Perhaps it's meant for the bubble boy when he comes and visits.

    Re: That Mysterious Snowglobe

    see the point of this is though the ac is on all of the time not just when people are in it! I am 100% sure people dont go in it and stay in it for anylong periods of time at all.

    Re: That Mysterious Snowglobe

    I believe the AC unit is there to keep it from fogging up. The thing gets thrown into the elements. Some days it's hot, then turns quickly to chill. Anything that's left out will form its own little ecosystem with condensation and precipitation... It's keeping that from happening.

    Re: That Mysterious Snowglobe

    They recently tried to cover up to the back of the snowglobe, but when they did, they put live plants on the stairs that are inside of the snowglobe. The plants, mixed with quick changes in temperature at night are what is probably causing the fogging up of the snowglobe.

    But I'm no chemist, so I could be wrong...
