Building an Igloo

The days are really short now and when clouds obscure the sky it seems that the day is over before it has even begun. On the bright side, we are only nine days away from winter solstice!

Anya and I have been working on an Igloo: After piling up snow for the past few weeks, we started to dig out the interior yesterday. Anya - not prone to claustrophobia - crawled inside and says the igloo has potential! In our dry and cold climate, we had to pack the powdery snow and let it sit for a while, before it was hard enough to hold its weight over the cavity.
