Let it snow? Not everyone would agree. Chicago is actually making more snow.

The city has fired up a snow-making machine in Grant Park. It's for a new, free festival called "Snow Days Chicago," that opens February 12.

The snow will eventually be packed into 10-foot high blocks, which sculptors will carve into pieces of art.
