Extreme winter weather like the storms across the United States' midwest and northeastern regions bring danger, inconvenience, and a huge mess for adults who have to commute to work.
However, for kids, it means no school—and plenty of time to play in the snow.
For this trio of Minnesota brothers, the week's snowstorms have become a massive and quite impressive wintry art project.
