If you’re finding the weather outside to be frightful, fix yourself a nice mug of hot chocolate and enjoy these snow-related videos:
This first one illustrates the advantages of staying inside with the hot chocolate. Because if I ever decided to clean the snow from my roof, this is probably how I would do it too:
But it is possible to have fun outside as well. Even the Amish know how:
If you are an awesome eight-year old girl, you can go out and have your fun, then come back home and write a song about it:
Finally, you might want to at least pop outside long enough to collect a bowlful of the fluffy stuff to make your own Snow Ice Cream:

America will never truly recover its position in the world as long as the Japanese are kicking our butts in condiment technology:
And finally, watch as two sets of identical twins – apparently both evil – mess with the heads of passers-by:
When window shopping, one should always be cautious in one’s choice of window…
