Winter Shelter - Igloo

A quinzhee made in Finland

Winter in the northern hemisphere is going to be starting in a few short weeks. To kick off that event, here is a link to an article at io9 on how to build an igloo.

Most folks will remember that igloos are a winter shelter built by Eskimos.

P.S.
The link in the io9 article is acting weird, so I provided a link to the beginning of the article from GORP
