  1. It’s Supposed To Be Spring, So Let’s Angrily Explode A Snowman In Slow-Motion

    March 20th was the first day of spring, but it seems like the weather in the Northern US and Canada really hasn't noticed (nothing like a fresh layer of snow when it's almost April, am I right?)

  4. North Carolina School Announces Snow Day By Rapping “Ice Ice Baby” On Youtube

    Is what I'm feeling joy or secondhand embarrassment?

    As much as we like to joke up North about how the South freaks out when even so much as a light dusting of snow settles on their soil, we'll concede that icy roads are no laughing matter.

    They set their test video to the Power Rangers theme, so, scales tipped toward amazing.

    This electric scooter from DK Laboratories took over 18 months to build from scratch, and comes complete with a ski in the front for optimal snow-travel. Even though this looks functional for snowy pedestrian cities (Toronto and NYC, I'm lookin' at you), there's still the whole thing where it's still a scooter, which just makes it super uncool.
