Enjoying a snow day after the storm

Posted

A bomb cyclone ripped through the Denver metro area March 13, causing havoc on roadways and residential neighborhoods. The Douglas County School District announced closures for March 13 and 14, giving kids across the county a chance to play in the late-season snow. That didn't necessarily mean staying away from school.

At a hill near Meadow View Elementary in Castle Rock, kids raced down the 6 inches of snow on plastic sleds, stopping only when they hit the exposed sidewalk at the bottom. Around the corner, at Butterfield Park, about a dozen kids and parents trudged up and sled down the hill as the sun came out in the early afternoon.

Across the street, on Butterfield Crossing Drive, two kids made use of a massive snowdrift in an open space to dig out a tunnel, sticking their sleds in the snow just outside the cave.
