Here's something to cool to think about on this hot August day: ice castles.
Edina built an ice castle in January 1988 to kick off events to celebrate its 100th birthday. Volunteers cut ice from Lake Cornelia.
And stacked the cubes, according to a design drawn up by Edina resident and architect Foster Dunwiddie.
The design was modeled after Edinburgh Castle in Scotland.
I think that's pretty cool, in more ways than one.
Note: Edina's 125h anniversary is coming up in 2013. What should the community do to mark this big occasion? Help us brainstorm by commenting below or by emailing us.
