Portland’s snowy hellscape has gone the way of warmer temperatures and more typical rain, and the snowy Menger sponge I built along with it, but I took some pictures while it was still up and while it was in the process of ceasing to be.
My wife had the excellent idea to stick a colored LED lamp in the interior of the sponge to light it at night; the various colors seen in these images are on a cycle that the lamp runs through, and it spent that whole first night slowly easing from one color to the next.
After a few days of sub-freezing temperatures, the weather started warming up to more typical Portland winter territory, a mix of 40s and 50s, and rain set in.
The Snowmeng, which had already started to deform a bit in the face of direct sunlight and its own weight, fairly quickly took on a heavy slump and then collapsed. A couple days later it was just snowy rubble.
