Well folks, it finally happened. We got a real-deal snow day that would qualify even up north. Most are relishing the rarely seen white stuff, as evidenced by all the snowmen and snow sculptures mushrooming up all over the neighborhood. There’s actually an art to creating these winter wonderland works, or at least that’s according to Darthmouth, which offers a course in it.

We’ve been getting some cool photos from our readers — check out this photo one reader sent us of a snow sculpture over in North Dallas. If you constructed your own masterpiece, send us a picture. And if you need some artistic inspiration to get you going, check out what some of the pros have created.
