Snow Day Fun

snow daySPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — The snow came in just in time to disrupt the morning commute.

Even though this meant no school for many kids, they were still up early to make the most of the day.

One child we spoke with, Degnan told us, “I was a little bit happy because I got to make my ninja turtles”

Classrooms were empty at Mary Lynch Elementary in Springfield, but the hill behind the school was packed with kids and kids at heart.

9-year-old, Ramos says, “I was excited because we haven’t had this much snow in a while”

And the snow today was perfect to make a snowman.

So 6-year-old, Joshua took full advantage, “First we like to build the bottom, then we build the other part, then we make a round circle head which is very hard!”

This was all just too much excitement to miss out.

After a fun-filled day in the snow there’s nothing better than something to warm you up.

8-year-0ld, Irizarry told us what she was doing after, “Go home and drink something hot to warm my body.  I’m going to have hot chocolate yummm.”

And after the day’s fun is over the only think on these youngsters minds might be their next day off, thanks to the snow.
