The winter solstice only just passed, but, already, parts of the country are completely snowed in. Erie, Pennsylvania, for example, experienced a record-breaking amount of snowfall this week, as it was buried in 34 inches of snow on Monday. Talk about a white Christmas.

On Tuesday, it experienced even more snow, bringing the total tally to a whopping 63 inches. Now that the storm has finally ceased, people are going to have to set about completing one of the most dreaded winter tasks: Shoveling every flake out of their yards. Luckily, if you're one of the many people who got pounded by snow, we've got a life hack for you that will save you loads of time and energy, not to mention impress your guests.

Yep, that's it—just treat the snow like it's a carpet, and roll away. In addition to saving your back a lot of damage, it has the decorative result of peppering your front yard with beautiful snow-stacks in the heart of winter.
