Igloo Update – It survived the thaw! Sort-of

One of the Igloo builders called me with a report on the condition of the igloo described earlier in this blog.

With that long period of warm rain, I was sure that the igloo was lost.

But no!

I remember a few years ago my daughter and I constructed an igloo in our garden when a few centimeters of snow arrived in May. We actually scraped the snow off the grass to make the igloo. It was spring, and immediately the balmy weather returned. The next day all of the snow, except for the igloo itself, melted. Over a couple of days the igloo collapsed in slow motion. It was like air leaking out of a balloon.

The report is that our 10-foot inside diameter igloo seems much smaller. There is only room for about 3 people inside, and the roof is much lower. Now it looks like a bump in the snow. Some people, who probably didn’t know it was an igloo had made a slide of one side of the igloo.

The entrance had filled in, and my friends had to dig a bit to be able to crawl in.

Right now the weather is cold and the shrunken igloo seems to be very sturdy.

If you are going to be in the area I’d love some pictures of the igloo.
