Fun in the Snow


Snow forts and sledding; perfect fun with fabulous friends!  I'd never built a snow fort before and had certainly never built on with G, who kept insisting we make it higher and higher (it ended up over the head of a friend who is 5'2"!)  But to make it that high requires some reinforcement of the facing wall and with the help of an engineer-friend, we quickly saw exactly why St. Dominic's flying buttresses were added after the 1989 earthquake.  It's one thing to know it, another to build it and really see!
