    News4's Pat Collins is on the lookout for the wackiest, most creative hats during Tuesday's snow day.

    The scarf-turned-hat was knit by Caroline's mother as a man's scarf until it "took on a life of its own," and became the winning creation. The hat works perfectly for the couple, who recently celebrated their 25th anniversary, and jokes that maybe the hat will help to keep them together for the next 25 years.
