It’s the 10th of the month, so we bring you 10 fabulous pictures on whatever cool subject we want.

Today it’s animals in the snow. From breathtakingly beautiful to just plain silly, its not hard to love any creature that’s contrasted against the stark white background.It seemed appropriate to share with you, the dear reader, pictures of how snow can be fun and cute to remind us – as winter is bearing down – that there are times when we like the snow and cold. They may be few and ridiculously far between, but sometimes it’s nice to have it around. Even, if for nothing else, if it’s just for the pictures.

As always, it was so painfully hard to choose only 10 photos … we really should consider moving this to the 20th of the month, so we don’t feel so bad about leaving some photos out. But you can see all of the cool pictures of animals enjoying the snow that we found for this post back at Newscom.
