    I can and will rebuild it. It is just too useful not too. I moved the last group out of it on Nov 28th, so it was vacant. I hope the house in the back is intact.

    I like how you've got your ladders hung up on the buildings although, how do you get them down?

    Quote:Just before she started following me she was rolling around with a snow ball. She figured out that if she jumped straight into the snow it would "pop" out a chunk of snow and she would have another "toy".

    Quote:If you look closely the highest part goes into a loop that is on the building, the bottom is then lifted and hung on a fixed hook. Just reach up and take down the bottom and stand it up. The top comes free as you do.

    We still have about 3 inches of snow on the ground, but there are some bare spots starting to emerge where runoff is melting it faster. Roads are clear.
