Winter is about five months (with snow) in these parts so is a major force of life . The rest of the time is filled with things ...many of which are in preparation for winter .
I knew snowflakes were complex, but I didn't know they were quite like this. And I always wanted to make a snow house or an igloo like that one.
Igloos are much more complicated than the snow house/cave. The right kind of snow- already compacted by amount- such as in a drift.I know that there are places where you can go to learn how to make an igloo. There is one such program on Lake Winnipeg , Manitoba. I think I would like to build and spend a few nights in one.
Snow is an amazing creation of nature hat we probably don't appreciate enough!!
I think recognizing it as a resource and gift is a hard thing for people to get their heads around. Of course , the beauty of it is the most obvious. The benefits are more than that. Yes you are right in saying that we don't appreciate it enough.
