Fort Jones, CA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: A large shield has been installed at the ball field in Fort Jones to aid in keeping the sun off of the igloo. The father of one of the young men attempting to finish this giant structure was at the ball field this morning chunking up more snow and ice so it would be ready to form into more blocks. He said that there were approximately 700 block in place, and each weighs in at around 70 pounds. They have about 125-150 to go. You can see it is heading into the dome stage now.

I am sure the rain we have been having along with warmer temps is not helping the cause at all! I will be checking back over there again tomorrow.

They have come so far and their dedication to their project is remarkable - sunny days are just not what they need at this stage, where the end is in sight !
Will keep my fingers crossed for them !

I have been inside - not today, the gate was still locked.  It wasn't warm inside because there is no roof on it yet.  The man said that when the sun hits the walls it is awesome inside.  They want to put a light inside when it is finished to see if it glows outside.  Sure hope I figure out when they are going to that!
