More snow cave adventures

The meeting room...this room is about 5 ft. high and about 15-18 ft. across (kind of round actually) with the kitchen set off to one side. This is where the youth group comes to get warm and watch movies (yes, they have a generator and have a TV and DVD player!)
My son and daughter and their good friend...trying to stay warm.
More friends in the meeting room. Altogether there are nearly 30 high school students and a few leaders, three I think!
One of my son's buddies trying to hide from the camera
One of my daughter's friends in their cave. My daughter and her three friends, along with a little help from dad and another male friend, dug this big enough for the four of them to sleep warmly last night!
The boy's den...the boys had a little trouble. They dug their cave too high and ended up being able to see daylight and had a leaky roof...so they are moving into the meeting room and sleeping there tonight. The wind chill could be -40 tonight, so they certainly need a warm, leak-proof cave!

WAY COOL! I can't imagine going into a snow cave to get "warm" (LOL).
