A winter carnival in St. Paul in January? Crazy. But that's not the craziest part. Why did we walk
from our house the fairgrounds to see these melting snow sculptures? Well it was finally up to the 20s and we were do dying to get out, so we decided to walk. It's "20 degrees outside" I thought "that's 30 degrees warmer than it's been. I don't need a hat." We were quickly reminded that 20 with a subzero wind is still pretty cold. They sculptures had been melting the day before, but they were not in danger of melting on this day! As they are a little deformed, I'll narrate.
I think this first one was a big squirrel.

This is a teepee with a sleeping women and a bear trying to eat her or get in out of the cold? Nick laughed at me for taking a picture without people in it so I'm posting it to spite him.
Nothing is quite as patriotic as a giant hand made out of snow hoisting the American flag.
OK, we saw the castle. We've seen 'em all. Lets go home, I'm FREEZING!!
