I spotted this sign on Sunday afternoon on Main Street in Luck, the little town north of us.
The sign was next to this.
Still, I wish I could have watched when the good people of Luck were building it. Did people make the ice blocks in their home freezers, or did the local butcher shop offer the use of their walk-in freezer? Who assembled the blocks? Did the village hire professionals, or was it a community event, with beer in the streets and a cherry picker for the upper levels and everyone in town offering advice? Or was it accomplished by a dedicated team of local ice nerds fantasizing their previously unknown architectural talents, who held meetings and drew plans and built scale models and argued about buttresses and fanciful colored ice? And how many times did they have to put that cross on top before it stayed?
