The Associated Press. In this photo released by the Florida Keys News Bureau, Cyndi Livingston, left, watches grandson Michael Walker play with a snorkeling snowman Friday in Summerland Key, Fla. Although temperatures in the Florida Keys on Friday were in the high 70s, about 20 tons of ice were crushed to create snow deposited on the Livingstons' oceanfront property. The family won The Weather Channel's "Guaranteed White Christmas" contest in which entrants submitted videos explaining why their families deserved a white Christmas.
