You may be asking yourself, "Oh dear, why is Paul sitting inside a snow bank?!" Well, after our last big snowfall (10"), Paul decided he wanted to build an igloo in the backyard. The snow wasn't sticky enough to cut into blocks, but there was enough of it to build a snow mountain of sorts and dig a tunnel into it. Three days of shoveling, piling, and digging, it was finally ready to be tested. We tried to get a shot of Paul and Kobe in it, but even cheese wouldn't make Kobe sit nice for a decent picture.
I don't know how efficient it would be to keep someone warm in a blizzard but it's pretty fun to watch a 6'2" man and a 50 lb dog crawl inside.
