Back from Ice Carving


I was back home for the annual ice carving competition yesterday. Our team, which has been carving for about a decade together, placed third overall in the city-wide competition. This year, we chiseled and scraped our 400-pound block of ice into a castle - complete with moat and drawbridge.

If you've never taken a crack at ice carving, you should - it's fun,challenging, and memorable.

Here's the finished, award-winning product the morning after the ice dust settled.
