Inspired by this viral story, www.viralnova.com/backyard-igloo/, two business owners from Windsor, Chris Cammock of Snapdragon Inn and Cassie Nyberg George of Bob’s Barber shop decided to give the backyard igloo building a try. By putting the word out around town and on the internet the ladies asked folks in town to save their 1/2 Gal milk/juice/other jugs, fill them with colored water and freeze them. About 40 people showed up to help build but the lack of bricks prevented a full igloo to be built so they went with Plan B and constructed a “gem castle.” The organizers hope to get more people involved next year so a full igloo can be built.
