Many Enjoy 'Snow Day' in Metro
Many in the metro turned Tuesday into a snow day, “You only get it a few times a year,” Susan Fleck said. She brought her two kids to a park just south of I-44 to sled. “I was begging for it all day,” Kendall Fleck said. Her son Nicholas even brought his snowboard to go down the hill, “You just have to try and keep your balance,” Nicolas said.
Snow fans say the park attracts dozens of people every time the snow falls, “Usually we see hundreds of people all day long, until like 11 pm,” Amber Lindauer said. She brought her 6-year-old daughter Peyton to sled. “Every time it snows we come out here, we just bought this sled today, usually we use a cardboard box,” Lindauer said.
“We wanted to have some fun with the kids and stuff,” Chuck Furrow brought his family to the park Tuesday afternoon with discs and a sled. Furrow says the snow turns slushy quickly but is still good for sledding, “Just get somebody behind you to push really hard,” Furrow said.
Some had a few problems traveling back up the hill, “It’s slushy, so going back up the hill you just keep slipping and sliding, it’s muddy underneath,” Susan Fleck said.
