"Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow," and boy has it ever.
Since you can't get out of your driveway, you might as well get out there and make something out of all that snow! 

Don't stay indoors just because it's cold outside - put on your sculptor's cap and dig in.  Show us your best snow sculpture, and we'll reward you with steaming hot cocoa.  Or a latte.  Or whatever you choose to make in your new Cocoa-Latte Maker.

To enter, just submit a new Instructable, slideshow or video of your awesome snow creation. We can't wait to see what you make - but don't wait - this contest only runs for 2 weeks!
