Could Igloos be the Latest Trend in Mid-Atlantic Housing?

Could Igloos be the Latest Trend in Mid-Atlantic Housing? If not, maybe they should be - and just think, low cost building materials and plenty of 'em. Good grief. There are areas that have up to five feet of snow on the ground after the February 6th and 10th blizzards in the D.C./Baltimore metropolitan area. This is an area where snowfall is typically measured in inches, not feet.

Hey Susan, I just read that Baltimore has had the more snow than any other US City as of today!

It's really something north of here in places. I've been having flashbacks of when I lived in western PA.

Susan ~ I lived in Central Western PA and I agree with the flashbacks! Yikes! Great post.

Great idea Susan, I can just see the igloos popping up all across the nation. Time to go back into raw land sales:-)

Yeah, and just think no waiting for a thaw to dig a foundation!

Nope, you can keep it. I like my indoor plumbing. Plus not a big fan of extreme heat or cold and sounds like that place has the A/C on 24/7.

As much as I enjoy snow, I'm rather glad it's all gone. We actually saw 70 degrees here this weekend.
