This is a bit misleading though. The kids spent a lot of time digging and piling snow in the centre. After a few days a crust formed on the top and they dug an igloo out of it. This is something I would never have thought of. After yesterday's snowfall the entrance is almost invisible now. It'll have to be dug out again.
Misleading or not, it's still mighty deep and I helped shovel a bit of it yesterday.
These piles look more realistic than the level of snow on the garage roof, but both are true.
