Back Bay Ice Home

Having spent several hours building this ice home, the kids, as many as 6 Back Bay kids at a time sat inside enjoying chocolate chip cookies. What fun on a snow day! The ice house is still enjoyed by neighbors, passers by and many 4 legged friends!

It is lasting well

It is lasting pretty well a whole week, only small 'modifications' (second doorway, pink inside), but its not melted nor given way to the kid seen sitting on top. The weather tomorrow will either reinforce it or wash it away... Bring on the snow and maybe we can make another unit and setup a condo trust.

Igloo remodelled as............

The igloo stood up to the weather, kids, curiosity and yes the dogs for more than a week. The rain on Thursday added too much wieght to the roof leading to a cave-in. However on Friday someone partially rebuilt the walls: the compacted, evelvated floor and surrounding walls has given it a whole new look: anyone in need of an outdoor Pulpit?
