Moby Monday — Whaling Wonderland

Did this week’s piles of drifting snow (or reports thereof) remind you of anyone? Moby Dick, with a hump white “like a snow-hill,” is a sometime inspiration for snow sculptors. Here’s a particularly impressive rendition, created by a team from Mexico in 2007 during Quebec City’s annual winter carnival.
