    Default Snow falling script

    I'm having some issue getting this script to work, could someone take a peek at it and tell what I am doing wrong? Each time I view it my browser nothing happens. It seems to work prior to me updating the image sources. Shows blank images falling [ x ]....

    Code:
    /******************************************

    * Visit Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/) for full source code

      //Configure below to change URL path to the snow image
      var snowsrc="http://www.wilmingtonapothecary.com/images/snow.gif"
      // Configure below to change number of snow to render
      var no = 10;
      // Configure whether snow should disappear after x seconds (0=never):
      var hidesnowtime = 0;
      // Configure how much snow should drop down before fading ("windowheight" or "pageheight")
      var snowdistance = "pageheight";

    The URL specified inside the script to the snow.gif image is incorrect (no file there):

    Code:
    http://www.wilmingtonapothecary.com/images/snow.gif
    Make sure this line is valid.
