As one can see, the installation received several inches this week (not uncommon for the region).

In this spirit, here’s footage from a few years ago of service members engaging in a similar contest. According to its source, this one is from Forward Operating Base (FOB) Tarin Kowt (sometimes spelled “Tarinkot”), also in Afghanistan.
