I decided that these hard-working snow-blowers deserve their own entry.
This is the ride - they have these padded inner tubes at the top, and kids (and some adults) ride down this snow-covered ramp. It's fast and looks fun. I didn't try it, though - I was busy.
Here, they're getting ready to refresh the layers of snow. I can't imagine it lasted long in the hot Texas sun. It was between 99' and 100' most of the weekend. The guy on the left was particularly hot.
They unloaded two skids of ice, each about four feet tall, from a big panel truck.
Gratuitous hot cowboy shot. These looked like pretty genuine country boys.
Here, they're feeding the ice into the chipper. It looked like a cross between an insulation blower and a mulcher.
I took plenty of pictures of the beautiful backside of the guy in the ballcap.
And here's the snow coming out!
