The winter (December of '00 so far) this year has been lots more fun. We've had near-record snow falls and it's been cold. So, I took an idea from one of the message boards I participate in and put up a hose with a sprayer on the end. Make sure you keep the hose running if you try this! Anyway, this has been lots of fun. The only problem is that the ladder I put up to hold the hose (on the right) is now a permanent part of the "sculpture".
