The weather is still very cold in Newfoundland.
Snow a lot here.
Cover with deep snow everywhere.
I have a good experience with building a snow fort!
從學校走 pipeline trails 到某個公園，
We went to a park which is near by Grenfell campus through pipeline trails.
It took about 10 ~ 15 mins to get there.
Before you start to shovel snow, there are some tips:
Choose the right shovel with an ergonomically curved or adjustable handle.
It will help keep you from injuring yourself.
Take about 10 minutes to warm up and stretch your muscles before you begin shoveling snow.
Find a good snowdrift or a place which is covered with deep snow.
Try to push snow when you shovel the snow instead of lifting it.
It took a lot of strength to shoveling snow which was not an easy work.
We lost our energy after shoveling back and forth about ten times.
Keep your hips and shoulders square.
Squat by bending your knees to get lower, and use your leg muscles, rather than your back, to lift.
If your legs are tired, you are doing it right.
Keep one hand as close to the blade as comfortably possible, while placing the other hand on the handle.
Step in the direction that you want the snow to go to.
Keep your feet facing where you are throwing.
The snowdrift was already done.
The snow became loose when we shoveled it.
As a result, we used our hands and snow shovels to make sure the snow was dense.
The more dense snowdrift was, the more stable it was.
It was the most important thing to make sure the snowdrift was dense due to the safety.
It is dangerous if you are buried in the snow during burrow the way into the snowdrift such as hypoxia and loss of temperature.
We tested the snow by lying on the snowdrift with our bodies.
If it sticks, the snow is prime for building.
Better wear waterproof gloves.
Otherwise, hands are easily frostbitten in the snow just like my friend.
Minguel made an entrance and cleared out a room from the inside with hands and the small shovel.
Other people removed the extra snow to another place.
Building snow fort took about one and half to two hours.
Though the snow fort was too narrow to accommodate all of us, it can accommodate 4 people.
Well... the snow fort was absolutely packed solid with six people.
Two of our legs were out of the snow fort.
We took some photos and went to see the ducks after building the snow fort.
I think wild birds in foreign country are not scared of human.
Perhaps foreigners do not approach wild birds on purpose.
