Snowman shows up outside Sacramento coffee house for Christmas

SACRAMENTO -- It did not snow in Sacramento, but a snowman was the talk of the town on Christmas morning.

The snowman showed up in the middle of the night in front of a coffee shop.

People stopped by all day Christmas Eve, taking pictures of the mysterious and shoddy snowman.

A coffee shop employee says she teamed up with one of Santa's helpers to make the Christmas surprise happen.

"Just wanted to give Sacramento something they've never seen - some snow. Give you guys some snow, a snowman and have a little miracle on Christmas," Carissa said.

She says someone brought the snow down from South Lake Tahoe.

A special shout out to Old Soul Coffee for pulling off that Christmas miracle.
