A major snowfall looks likely this weekend. If it happens, the best advice is to stay home and have fun. Where is the best place to go sledding in your neighborhood? Please share your recommendations.

When I was a kid growing up in Morganton we had several favorite places. I recall waxing up the blades of my Flexible Flyer and heading to a huge hill behind North Anderson Street. During the summer, neighborhood children groomed the trail by clearing brush and marking off the trail with limbs.

Later in high school there was a huge hill behind the First Baptist Church. I remember spending a weekend with friends flying down that big hill with little or no fear. Gosh, we had a great time!

What about you? What are your sledding memories and where do you head today to have some fun?
