(Read caption) Winter storm Nemo: Tweet us your photos as winter storm Nemo forces you and your kids to think outside the house for activities. Here, people cross the road in Muskegon, Mich., where the storm passed through Feb. 7 on its way to the Northeast Thursday.

Somebody call Disney and tell them to stop looking for Nemo, the whole Northeast just found him and he’s packing some serious winter fun wallop. Sadly, here in Norfolk, Va. we’ve got nothing but gloomy old rain, as usual. No winter storm Nemo for us. Our southern kids dream of what they would do if they got a “real” snow. My solution is to challenge readers to create something awesome and fun out of snow and share the winter wealth with the blizzardly-challenged around the world by tweeting photos of their creations to @modparenthood with the tag #Nemo. 

I must admit I was inspired by the Verizon snowman TV spot that always makes my kids look at me like I’m as cool as the mom on the commercial. In the spot two adult brothers share photos of their snow creations back and forth on their phones, one-upping each other until they evolve to snow horses and dragons. However, Mom trumps them both with a two-story, fire belching snowman.
