Below are pictures taken on the cold (0 degrees) late morning (around 11am) of Monday, January 19th 2004 after dropping off my sister at work in downtown St. Paul.
As I was listening to KTIS 98.5 FM, they mentioned that they already have put over 20,000+ blocks of ice. 5,000 is left to be put on by Thursday this week when they have their Opening Ceremonies in start of the Winter Carnival.
This will be the first ice palace that visitors can walked though, which they used concrete slabs and other materials for safety strong foundation issues.
