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.

It didn't start out that way,but you are right, Randel, they are now importing some the stuff in.  I have been meaning to donate 'building material' from my 3 feet of block ice that the snow has now turned into. ;)  They have been having weather issues.  Last week we had a 'warm spell' where it got up to 33 for about 3 days in a row.  The paper said they used camper jacks to support some sagging areas of the walls inside.  Then, it got really cold and trying to pack iced over snow was impossible.  They added 'snow' to the form buckets and then water and had to let the blocks freeze over night again.  They also have a sprayer they spray the inside and outside with water for help in re-freezing.  Hard to believe the work that goes into these things!
