With Nemo on the way and the kids home from school Friday and into the weekend, there's sure to be plenty of outdoor fun in the snow once the blizzard passes through. From snowball fights to snowmen, the nearly three feet of snow expected in some areas should provide a great environment for winter activities. There should even be enough snow for a fort.

With that thought, the Movoto real estate blog has created a neat tool that allows users to calculate just how many blocks of snow they'll need to build their ultimate fort. Check it out. (I was only off by 247 blocks.)
