it's quite easy, you can do so in a day.and have the walls be 12" thick, with a cold sink at the doowway and a right angle crawlway entrance. The quickie one, for icefishing, need not have all the refinements if you're not going to live out there.a properly made igloo is 50F degrees warmer than the outside temps, just because of your body heat. That's why you want it, so you dont have to use any firewood for warmth. Saves a TON of time and calories.

And another thread of inane blather you started without addressing any of the BS that you are called out on in other threads.

so is two inches of snow a reflection of global warming, or is just a reflection of what might happen in any given year.

we get snow, but when the ice storms the local electric power companies get busy, often asking for help.

damn big ole trees that have been codified into the local communites can wreak damage.

power lines and big ol trees that nobody will cut causes power outages.

when i have a power outage i crank the wood stove, and heat it up.

i can remember, 50 years ago, getting no more than 2" of snow all winter, in Illinois. I dont believe that there's anything to be done about global warming, other than nuke all the third worlders. They are causing 70% of it.

You know what I do when I want to be warm? I go in my house. I don't build an igloo, sleep under an overpass, or hide in my mama's basement. I do this because I'm a man that has more sense than God gave a goose.

Good luck in life...

If you build your igloo when it is 0*F outside and it is 50*F warmer inside won't it melt?

somebody said I'd posted over 100 of them, so "most' has to mean over 50 threads. Nobody's got that sort of ability, other than me, of course.
