oO
anywhere at the body tag
i think you should modify one variable
var snowingzone=3
to
var snowingzone=1

.. i think your site has something like a header (thats used to create every site) put just put it after <body> ..
thats all

The nice thing about the web is the lack of bad weather conditions...

rjust to let you know, it is a good effect but it does cause extra lag. this is one of my websites http://www.authoritiveanarchy.tk (hasnt been updated, because according to this im making a rpg with toolkit, but im actually making a Orpg with C++) it has the snowing effect, along with a popup and music... thats lag for ya.

p.s: thats custom music from one of our members. do you like it?
