In all seriousness, besides the usual snowmen and other various sculptures, snow balls and forts, and the ever-popular snow-made ice cream, does anyone have any clever ideas to do with snow?  I seem to have an awful lot of it just at the moment.  At least several hundred cubic feet...

You can make ice cream... It actually tastes rather good. The recipe I used in the past used heavy cream and vanilla extract.

You can also pour maple syrup on it and let it freeze a bit, swirl on a bamboo skewer and eat!

You could get some Kool Aid flavoring, some sugar, mix it so you have a watery super sweet mixture, and make homemade snowballs!  Like, not to throw at people, but to eat.   I love doing that.   Or with chocolate syrup.

I LOVE playing in the snow and this is what I did around Christmas when we got several inches.
I used a plastic rubbermaid container for the body of the wreath, Free handed the bow as i'm sure you can tell, And mixed green food coloring in a bottle with water, And since I didn't have any red food coloring.. I used kool-aid.
I thought it was cool and it got several weary glances from the neighboors.. tehehe.

this was actaully larger than the pics make it seem.. it took up the entire front yard.. which is pretty big anyways.

Those are actually some really good ideas.  I like the idea of coloring the snow.  The lights sound lovely, but I've taken down my Christmas lights and put away my outdoor extension cords.  Now, my only problem is being able to stay out long enough to do anything.  In addition to getting 12 inches, and at least 4 more expected in the next two days, it also hasn't topped 10 degrees F here.  I'm not really one to hang out outside if it's 20 below freezing.  I suppose I could take a space heater out there with me, but then I'd just have colored puddles of ice.  Not that that doesn't sound sort of interesting...
