Flurry '05 - sort of winter themed puzzle.

Okay, here's a new one.
Generally I try to follow the
symmetrical grid rule, but
not this time because I wanted
the grid to show a specific
pattern. The resulting grid
left me (us) with more two
letter words than I really
like, but what the hell. It's 
late in the year. We're all
fried. It's better than
no puzzle at all, right?
