For five hours on Sunday the Mason family built an igloo in their backyard, block by block, out of packed snow. The idea came from a visiting aunt who had brought an Icebox Igloo Building Tool for the task. The snow structure is over 6 feet tall and provides plenty of play space for 11-year-old Teigan, 6-year-old Vincenzo and 19-month-old Giovanni.
