A Long Island man decided to take advantage of February's near-record snowfall to build an impressive snow luge for his nieces and nephews.
Jay Venini of Northport shot video of his backyard creation, dubbed the "Looney Luge," in early February. He says he got the idea to build a snow luge so that his family "could have a fun place to go and play in the snow," according to the YouTube video description.
The kids used toboggans to slide around the track, which, in true Olympic spirit, sported the words "USA 2014" on the side, with the help of some Kool-Aid coloring.
