some assembly required...
Its a highly technical endeavor. You have to get just the right angle on your shovel, or garden hoe as the case may be. The bigger the
brick, chunk of snow, the more manpower it takes to place it. The crew has been at it for weeks now. They use sleds and wagons to haul the big chunks of snow left behind by the snowplows. Then they hoist them stacking one on top of the other to build up the walls.
On any given day between 2 and 6 boys show up to play, work.
Nolan decided to venture out on his own and dug this fort out on his own.
He is explaining to me he wanted to be able to stay out of the wind so he dug down, then built the walls up.
You see, the boys have been taking notes. Across the street is the grandaddy of all snow forts. Now this is an entrance. Its perfectly mommy-proof as no amount of convincing could get this neighbor mom to crawl inside.
But don't let the fact that you have to crawl in on your stomach fool you... its big inside and has not 1 but 2 rooms in it.
And to the untrained eye? That is just an old broken hockey stick sitting in a snow bank. But if you watch carefully... smoke has been seen arising from the depths of the fort. We've heard it has its own "heat" source, but we're keeping mum on that little added bonus.
When you get lucky
