Today we receive many weather alerts to prepare for tomorrow. Our Pennsylvania town will enjoy at least 17 inches of snow. For my readers in the south, this means we pull out the snow boots and gloves, the shovels and the salt, and the mittens and the scarves. We’ll dress in thermal layers to shovel snow, walk the neighborhood, and make snowmen in the front yard.
We might even build snow forts.
10 years ago–with this kind of snow–we all made a real igloo. It took all day. The grad students helped, and the igloo lasted till April.
I’m tempted to build another one.
