Well, I'm pretty sure its apparent that I am no fan of cold weather. But our friend, Bill Covitz, check him & his carvings out @ http://www.icematters.com was doing an ice carving demonstration this weekend @ Lyman Orchards (check them out @ http://LymanOrchards.com Annual Winterfest Show. Its still a wicked sure bet that I now despise the cold, but I sure as hell appreciate ice and these amazing magicians that turn ice into Art like I have never seen before. I don't know how they do it ~ its seriously a mystery to me. First, you have to be some sort of Ice Demi-God just to imagine it in 3D and then sculpt it. Nothing, short of a miracle in my book. Then it must be done in below freezing temps without your hands falling off. Honestly, next to a Laser-Brain Surgeon ~ this is the occupation that baffles me the most ~ all the way home I kept asking "but how does he do it?"
I will never know ~ mostly because I am a big baby that cannot tolerate the cold.
