Chrysler demonstrates that snow days can be fun—even for adults.

Snow day.

Those were once magical words.

As kids, after peering out our bedroom windows to see that Mother Nature had blessed us with a fresh, thick blanket of white overnight, my sister and I would sit at the breakfast table eagerly waiting for the phone to ring.
