Minnesota State Snow Sculpting Competition winners
Despite the lack of natural snow, the Minnesota State Snow Sculpting Competition went on as planned over the weekend. There were 18 teams of three, whittling down 8 foot blocks of snow using only hand tools. The sculptures are on display at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds through Feb. 4, but given the warm weather, they may not last that long. As of Monday morning, Jan. 29, one sculpture had already toppled.
