Ten Pieces of Snow Art To Cheer on Dallas' Cold Front
Early morning flurries left light frost and a gentle dusting around Dallas, but we at Mixmaster are shamelessly holding out for more. Sure, fancy weather scientists say it's over and that the only thing dropping tonight will be the temperature, but we don't care. We're going to manifest a snow day. To help us do it, here's a photo compilation of interesting, beautiful or outright weird snow art built in places much colder than North Texas. Now, let's cheer on the white stuff.

Proof that angels get stuck too. Hang in there, lady.
Frontiersman fella has this situation under control.
HOW? It doesn't seem like this should work, for weight alone. But that's a an upside down bboy pose being struck on an icy blanket. Amazing.
Sigh, sometimes it's the little things. A tribute to Austin-based illustrator Don Hertzfeldt this two-snowman sculpture of violence is just great.
