Kids celebrate snow day

Posted January 29, 2014

— From the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh to the Old Well in Chapel Hill and in yards and subdivisions across the Triangle, students sprung free of school for a second day reveled in the snow that resulted from Wednesday's winter storm.

With classes canceled just about everywhere and many day cares and businesses also closed, many residents of the Triangle were simply able to enjoy the snow day.

Even before dawn, kids were bundled up and outdoors to enjoy the fluffy flakes. In Cary, sledders were spotted by Sky 5 climbing a hill at McGregor Downs Country Club before 8 a.m. 

Snow Day at NC STATE!!!

Another sledder got creative, using bacon to spur on his "sled dog."

At NC State, a snowboarder improvised a ramp in the Court of the Carolinas.

And in Fayetteville, WRAL reporter Gilbert Baez challenged a group of kids to a sled race. His head-first style saw him reach the bottom first.

    Maybe because all the kids in school don't live in your subdivision?

    i'm confused. I'm looking out at the street in our subdivision. they are clear. we has an issue with our heating system. the guys came around 9:15, accessed the situation, went for parts, came back and fixed theunit before noon. they said the roads were clear. WHY are these schools closing again tomorrow?

    Today is a great snow day. Yesterday's cancellation of schools was ridiculous.
