Local resident, John Brooks, has been working on his traditional winter ice sculpture outside his home at 104 VanBuren Street in Kemptville. There were some challenges to face before he managed to complete the work:
“I hurried to finish this year’s sculpture when I saw freezing rain in the forecast. The snow was difficult to work with, especially for piling it up after a lot of snow had hardened on my lawn; but I was finally able to get it 8′ high! This is the first time in about 30 years that I have tried lighting like this.”
Some traditions can make even winter’s worst worthwhile. (Try saying that fast!).
