Schools in the area have been closed on and off all week long. However, today is the first actual snow day that the kids get to enjoy being outside and playing with friends and family.
Several kids said they were excited about drinking hot chocolate, snow ball fights, and building a snowman.
Temperatures should warm up through the weekend, but it is important to dress your kids warm while their playing outside, until temperatures rise.
Parents say they are making sure their kids stay warm and avoid getting sick by taking breaks to go inside, warming up, drying out clothes, and thawing out, then its back to fun with the kids.
