Kids celebrate snow day
Posted January 29
Raleigh, N.C. — 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.
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.
