I'm not a big enough nerd to get your Lord of the Rings reference. Or rather, I am, I'm just more of a Harry Potter nerd. So maybe if you said the accumulated sleet made it look like someone had put a hovering charm (wingardium leviosa) on your neighbor, I would have gotten the joke.
No snow or even sleet here- just cold. Wish I had some of those blue flames Hermione's so good at making. Heck, I'm so cold, I'd even be happy for the company of a blast-ended skrewt!
