Over the years, Mother Nature has caused a problem or two for the annual Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition because it's been too warm, or we haven't gotten enough snow. That is certainly not the problem for this year's get-together at Sinnissippi Park. We've gotten a lot of snow lately, so supplies will be very good.

While Wednesday morning's temperature won't be sitting below zero like we experienced last week, there's not much danger of any serious melting going on. Thursday we'll edge up close to the 34 degree mark, then temperatures will hold steady in the mid-30s through the weekend.

All things considered, it could be a little colder for optimum results, but it appears as though the weather won't ruin the fun.

Starting On Wednesday, Teams Will Be Out There Each Day Sculpting From 7am To 11pm, State Teams May Work Through The Night On Friday

I've always loved seeing what our area high school teams come up with each year to try to win area bragging rights, while other teams from around the state of Illinois are going at it to win the right to go on to represent Illinois in the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition in 2025.

Here's some great examples from the last few years of the Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition at Sinnissippi Park:
