LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- What do you do when life gives you too much snow? Build an igloo and sell it online, obviously.

At least that’s what some industrious New Yorkers tried to do, reports FOX 29.

The listing for “Snowpocalypse 2016’s most desirable getaway” didn’t last too long on vacation rental site AirBnB, but it lasted long enough to be shared on social media sites.

"Dripping with ingenuity and alt-lifestyle aura lays the Snopocalypse of 2016’s most desirable getaway," the description read.

"Hand-crafted, and built using only natural elements – we're offering the experience of a life time in this chic dome-style bungalow for you and bae."

While there are igloos on AirBnB, this post got removed from the site.

But the company did acknowledge the joke before removing the post.

"We are happy to see that you guys are staying busy and having fun during Blizpocalypse," wrote the representative. "Unfortunately, your igloo, while very well constructed, has failed to meet our occupancy standards and has been removed from search results."
