Perfect Snow

We haven't gotten the volume of snow predicted but we did get enough overnight to accumulate an inch or two of wet, packable snow that'll be perfect for the construction of a snow trench or quinze.

If we get enough additional snow during the day today I will get the kids out to help me pick a spot and start piling snow.

After last year's igloo became the rally point for all the kids of the neighborhood this year's shelter should go up earlier and stay up longer.

The snow trench is more likely to get built from this snow because it will require less material to construct. Maybe we'll build a snow trench in front and a quinze in the back.

Stay tuned.

Thanks for reading,
