After suffering through a series of intense blizzards, a Boston man named Kyle Waring has decided enough is enough! His “Ship Snow, Yo” packages, sells and delivers the “historical” snow across the U.S. – and in its startup phase, it's already viral on the Internet.

Waring is a 27-year-old who, like many other Boston residents, is quite sick what seems to be never-ending snow. So, with an endless supply, he worked some winter magic and decided to cash in on the demand – in other parts of America.
According to Buzzfeed, the genius behind this idea started when he was shoveling snow with his wife and they decided to send some of the snow over to their family in Florida – as a joke. But it caught up and soon transformed into an actual business, to the tune of $89 a box.
Their website states:
“This is your chance to not only own a piece of history, but also help save Boston from #Snowmageddon2015! Every order counts.
“Note: We will not ship snow to any states in the northeast! We’re in the business of expunging snow!
How exactly does he deliver snow – since it’s bound to change in different temperatures? Well, the website comes with a warning that it may arrive as water. And for this reason, he sends a picture of the snow included in the package.
The other precautions he has taken includes sealing the snow in a Ziploc bag, wrapping it in tin foil and placing it in a 1.5-inch-thick Styrofoam container. The service promises delivery anywhere in the U.S. within 20 hours.
Warren is not exactly looking to turn this into a million dollar business. Most of the people who are making orders, he notes, are sending them to little kids. But innovative as he is, he’s already looking into using the same idea for the fall season.
