For now the promise of snow or even cold temperatures doesn't look too promising. However, registrations are still encouraged for the Bold and Cold Snow Sculpture Competition which is scheduled for January 17-20. As it's looking for more likely there's gonna be a problem finding snow there are plans to try it in February should the warm weather continue. There's no charge to register and there will be prizes awarded. Go to the Owatonna Parks and Recreation web site to sign up.
