the first igloo in Virginia!

Well maybe not the first… but our first one.

(if you want to see a few other pictures, visit my Flickr page)

Funny how I never saw one in Ohio, but Isa had made them when she was a kid in Michigan, so she had the grand idea. It started as a small mound with a hole dug into it, then got became a larger mound with a little bigger hole… and then I added the ‘blocks’ (made from packing snow in a recycling bin!) completely around the mound. It almost didn’t work because the snow is just so dry and powdery (probably perfect for snow cream!) …

now the neighbors are trying to build one. We’ll see.
