What to do when it is COLD but NO snow

Welcome to Horne St Rail Jam 2013.  (so far so good. But I may refile this under the category of “It seemed like a good idea at the time”)

On a very cold, late autumn day,

The boys in the neighborhood wanted to play

With no snow in the forecast but a chill in the air

It seemed like a good idea or at least a good dare

6 loads of snow from the local ice rink

I wonder what the people must think

We piled it high on a ramp and a rail

Was this idea destined to fail?

We worked through the day the sun started to set

They said we wouldn’t finish- Wanna make a bet?

Now the snow park’s complete, we blazed a trail

Now come out and watch us grind on the rail!
