Mother Nature, meet dad of the year.

Winter blasted a healthy chunk of snow on the northeast this week, but it could melt in seconds after watching this girl show her appreciation for her dad as he shovels out their driveway.

We all want to be a hero to our kids and this father certainly is while completing a grueling task. And while snow remains a source of frustration for drivers, as well as a messy threat for train commuters, there are those moments when enduring a blizzard makes it all worth it, whether you're riding the waves or hitting the slopes.

We think this dad is a-okay with the brutal weather because it gives him the chance to save the day for his little girl. If he could melt this house, she may be led to believe he's a total superhero.
