I think I'd enjoy your weather for maybe a week but I think better in theory than practise.

It's a trade-off on the block size. Too little: inefficient. Too big: back breaker!

Eskimos of whatever stripe are the hardiest man Jacks on the planet. They eat National Geographic photographers for breakfast.

With a lot of spices, garlic, and Tabasco, they being pretty much as tasteless as tofu.

Incidentally, the vid won't play for me on Firefox or Opera; says "OUPS! Stumbled upn an error! Could not connect to URI through all valid protocols"

And they did spell it "OUPS".

Maine -- it's a lifestyle choice.
My post: a report on my mother. I left out the part about how she braved the storm this morning to go out and get her hair done. A girl wants to look her best.

I built one of these about fifteen years ago - a small one as we had a decent snow pack after a couple of storms but not enough to build a full size one.

Tell you what - it wasn't all that hard and when it was finished it was fairly warm inside. If you had to, you could start a small fire and walk around in a sweat shirt and jeans.
