The Icetweets Cometh

On Sunday I will leave for Fairbanks for another year of carving ice with Lars Hansen at the World Ice Art Championships. After taking last year off, we will once again compete in the Single Block Classic next Tuesday through Thursday.

I'm going to do one thing differently this year: Instead of blogging about our progress (and struggling to post up-to-date information), I'm going to try tweeting. I've only been on Twitter for about a year, and this will be my first ice carving event since then. It should be easier for me to post quick updates and photos that way without having to take as much time away from the competition to prepare blog entries.

So, for those of you who have followed our ice sculpting escapades on this blog in the past, you should keep an eye on my Twitter feed this time around. I may post a little bit (like hopefully a web cam link) here, but most of my updates will be over there. My poor Twitter followers (who mostly know me for things unrelated to ice) have no idea what's coming!

Oh, and here's a photo from Lars, a sneak peek at what we'll be doing next week!
