Surprise surprise surprise.
We got to the block bright and early at 8am this morning only to find out that it rained fairly heavy at 3am. Any details that Theressa had carved last night were virtually gone. The snow was very soft, and we had a lot to do before we could say that we were finished.
After 4 hours of steady work, we finished our modified design. The snow wouldn’t let us finish the way we wanted to. Our original plan was to hollow out underneath the jumper, who was jumping into the lake of ice-cold water. We were able to get good lines and movement in the 4 pillars or splashes of water.
The evening finished with a great supper and shared stories, both snow sculpture and otherwise. A shout out goes to Barb at Black Fox Distillery and Farm for the bottle of Oaked Gin (which was named the world’s best gin in London, England). We shared the bottle with the sculptors and some of the organizers. The consensus was that it was quite nice. Thanks Black Fox Distillery.
Tomorrow we catch a train to Venice with a stop in Udine to visit with a couple of friends. On Tuesday, Carole flies home while Theressa and Terry fly up to Kiruna Sweden for our next competition.
