Hello again, everybody! The Habitat for Humanity awareness event at Fitger’s was a success. The turnout for the ice lantern contest was small, but we had fun. A big shout out to everyone who came, including my friend Kal and his family.
My dad and I slept in the ice house that Habitat for Humanity built. We were expecting to be more challenged, but luckily it was only 14 degrees on Saturday night.
We woke up and looked outside to see a quilt of snow on the cracked ice of Lake Superior.
Last night was a different story. It was -10 degrees inside my quinzhee, which was colder than it’s been in there all year. With the windchill, it was so cold my school closed today, but I stayed toasty since the windchill doesn’t affect me in my quinzhee.
Finally, I’d like to thank the people who have contributed to Habitat and Hawk Ridge so far. We have a long way to go before we meet our goal, but we’re off to a great start thanks to you. The International Habitat site doesn’t have a way to tell us how much has been donated, so we’ll try to get an update for you. In response to a comment on the home page, yes, the donations made through this website are recorded under Snore Outdoors.
