Snow Day Construction
March 06, 2013
The snow has been sitting out there on your lawn and in parking lots everywhere for a couple of weeks now. Many people are ready to see it gone with the warmer days to come this next week, and I know I'm one of them. If you can't sled on it or build a snowman, then there should be no snow. However, when it is a good snow, who doesn't love a snow day? Okay, maybe not the people that have to drive in it or shovel it.
So what does it mean to have a snow day? Well, it's a time for the neighborhood kids to wage snowball wars against each other for bragging rights the next day during school. And, it's a day to see who can build the most awesome building or structure out of snow. Right here in Parkville, we take the cake.
On Monday, February 25, a group of neighbors banded together before the second band of snow came later that evening. They designed and built an igloo, or more of an ice cave really. They made it large enough to house not only kids and adults alike with a whole entertainment system, like a large screen TV!
I don't know what your entertainment room looks like on a snow day, but the neighborhoods looked pretty cool. And that is a pun.
What awesome things did you do with the snow days we had in February?
