No, it's not that bad actually. Of course one does not sleep in there in plain pajamas. It's winter after all. But it offers a quite good shelter, especially with a long tunnel like this one has. It can be quite homey in a way. Last time I invited my wife for a cup of tea during the day. Complete with portable camp stove for boiling water and all that. Yes, she would not sleep in there.
It is safe as long as it's still winter outside. I mean, if things are melting all around, then perhaps it's time to move to a tent. Not to mention that the insides will be getting smaller and smaller as snow melts.
During the day, the light inside is quite nice. It is a mix of white and blue. In many places in the walls the light seeps in with a bright blue tint. I usually 'frost' the inside walls by having a camping lantern burn in there for sometime.
