FARGO—Are you nursing or icing a sore back tonight?

Join the club.

If you shoveled today's snow, we don't have to remind you.

It's heavy and wet.

But there was one thing this snow was good for, building snowmen.

Eli and Braeden had the perfect solution to boredom on this storm day off from school.

"I am making a snowball for my snowman," said, Eli.

Mackenzie Hamm of the Schlossman YMCA helped guide the two boys to a day of building a snowman.

It indeed was a perfect storm.

"When i saw this coming down, I got excited. Because I thought these kids are going to love building snowmen," said, Hamm.

Sometimes Braeden got a little sidetracked with the whole mini-carrot thing, but the boys managed to roll and pack an entire family of four.

So heavy the belly was sometimes hard to stack.

"Good job, now we need some snow packed in here so we don't lose it," said, Hamm.

But soon the boys had their snowmen, complete with accessories; Hat, scarf, and mittens.

"You like it, he is about your size. You two should stand by it," said, Hamm.

A picture perfect snow day.

Mission accomplished.

Back to kindergarten, and first grade tomorrow.
