Fort Jones, CA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: These two friends have been building igloos around Fort Jones since they were kids. the last several years they have been here at the Ball field, and are getting bigger each year. This year they hope to break the world record by sometime next week. It is currently sitting at 12' high by 31' across. Finished height will be a whopping 19 feet! They have been hampered by both warm and currently, extra cold temps that have slowed the progress, but they are confident that it will be done next week.

I saw 4 guys out in that field this morning - late morning because today was in the single digits starting out!   
I think I would of had a system wherein people could come by, make their own block to add to the project and carve their initials into it. lol
