TTC Stop Igloo

TTC Shelter Turned Into an Igloo

After two weekend snow storms and more white stuff than the city knows what to do with, finding a place to put the snow can be a real challenge. Fortunately a group of people at Trinity-Bellwoods Park this weekend came up with an idea and covered almost three sides of a TTC shelter at Queen and Strachan with snow. It's kind of like an igloo, but I think it looks more like fort, regardless, the technique is most impressive.

It's not just a big pile of snow, but individually cut blocks stacked neatly. The builders even provided two windows so waiting riders could see the next streetcar approaching. I don't really care for the purple dye that's covering most of the structure, but there is a message painted into the snow on the one side (pictured below). I've got to say, bravo to whoever participated in this - a fun and safe way to use the snow.
