When you sit on Santa’s lap what do you ask for? A puppy? Rollerskates? For grandpa to still be alive?

Well, these little girls wanted nothing more than a white Christmas. But one cannot control the weather — not yet anyway — leaving this dad, and defacto Santa Claus, out in the cold. But this isn’t the time for sitting down. This when you lace up your snow boots and get to work.

Asif Sheikk of London ordered a truck of snow to order roughly three tons of snow to a communal garden near his house to create a small patch of winter wonderland.

"It was a bit of a race to get it all set up before the girls woke,” he told The Daily Mail. "I had to make sure my wife kept the curtains closed while I built the snowman and placed the cameras. It was a lot of effort but it was so worth it just to see their faces – they totally loved it.”

Check out the video for yourself and let your heart be warmed already.

Obviously she's too small to dig you out of your house, but look at those snow swimming skills! Surely she could manage to bring you a slice of pizza in your time of need.


Last year was all about snacking rodents. Hopefully this year will not turn out to be all about rodents dealing with harsh weather conditions.

'Good deeds don't go unpunished,' demonstrated Mother Nature, or Jack Frost.


24-year-old Matthew Bove hit Twitter Monday morning to share a spectacular photo, which depicts an impossible stroke of bad luck. Or this dude dipped overcharged his karma bank recently. Either way Bove made the safe decision to leave his car overnight by a bar him and his friends had spent their evening at. So Kudos to Bove for making the right call.


What you see here is the icy aftermath of what's called the lake-effect phenomenon. This takes place when a cold front absorbs moisture as it passes over a big, warm body of water, and then tends to produce absurd amounts of snowfall.


For a moment there we thought this might be the latest in a string of prior Jimmy Kimmel vs. John Krasinski & Emily Blunt pranks. In case you were unaware those two star-studded teams have been exchanging Christmas-wrapped cars for blows in an epic ongoing prank war.

During the hottest month, on an equatorial paradise island, snow fell. Welcome to the end of days.

On the 'Big Island' of Hawai'i, the white stuff sure did come down July 11 and it made a winter wonderland of the Mauna Kea mountaintop.

Those big, imposing buildings there are the Mauna Kea Observatories, some of the largest astronomical facilities like it in the world. Wonder if they saw the snow coming...

Get a load of some of these pictures and maybe rethink that vacation.

The country experienced some very weird weather over the weekend, especially Colorado.

A group of storm chasers spotted the “Wizard of Oz” IRL Saturday in Eads, and they captured the unusual sight in the video above.

Rain-nado or Torn-bow? You decide.

A photo was also posted to Facebook and Twitter, with some commenters wondering if it was Photoshopped.

Although the video footage proves otherwise.

“Somewhere over the rainbow in Colorado today, there was another rainbow, with a tornado above it!” the Basehunters wrote on Facebook. “An incredible sight to witness in person!”

Sure it’s cool to see, but it’s probably not a great idea to try to find the pot of gold in this case.

Meanwhile in Denver, late season snow on Sunday made for some unpleasant conditions to play baseball, but they did anyway.

The Colorado Rockies tweeted pictures of Coors Field blanketed in snow Sunday ahead of theirafternoon game against the LA Dodgers.

Go home Mother Nature, you’re drunk.

Talk about “monk”-eying around.

A group of Franciscan monks in Jerusalem was caught on video this week having a little fun in the snow.

Storms recently blanketed Israel with some cities receiving their first snowfall since the 1990s.

Watch these guys take a break from their religious duties to frolic in the white powder wearing dark hooded robes.

Meanwhile in Boston… the mayor wants residents to stop jumping out windows.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Mayor Martin J. Walsh issued a warning to anyone participating in a viral video trend where they record themselves diving into piles of snow.

People have been posting the clips online to YouTube and Vine with the hashtag#BostonBlizzardChallenge.

“I’m asking people to stop their nonsense right now. These are adults jumping out windows,” he said. “This isn’t a Loon Mountain, this is the city of Boston.”

Actual Loon Mountain in New Hampshire also got wind of the Mayor’s comments, and they say they don’t want any of these shenanigans either. They spoke with one of the jumpers about it in a new video.

What’s black and white and rolls down a hill?

Bao Bao the baby panda enjoying her first snow day at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, D.C.

While Tuesday’s snow may have ruined your day, the sixteen month-old cub seemed to really enjoy it. The little ball of fur tumbled around in the white stuff and wrestled her mother Mei Xiang.

And she wasn’t the only one amused by the storm. Here are some lion cubs tackling each other and a gray seal shoving its nose into the snow.
