This isn't really the North Pole. But Santa's helpers are inside making chocolate for everyone on the naughty or nice list. Connors Candy Cottage, Rochester, WA

Santa's helpers making chocolate inside.

This may look like the North Pole at 4:30 in the morning, but it is really a chocolate shop in Rochester, WA. Bob and Janet Connors, owners of Connors' Candy Cottage, are working like Santa's Elves 24 hours a day making chocolates.
We just had a new dusting of snow and the plows were out on Highway 12 cleaning it up. We were very pleased that they didn't leave huge piles of snow in front of our walkway.
Look how big the icicles have grown on the side of our shop. We wish this was really a Gingerbread house, each icicle would have a different flavor. Yum.
