Gavin Spires holds on tight as his sled hits a homemade snowbank at Gray Park, sending his sled into the air. Several local youngsters took advantage of the snow day as area schools closed due to the weather. They spent the day sledding, building snowmen, having snowball fights and more. Today’s forecast includes mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the teens and wind chill values as low as -5 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures will rise back up into the 30s by Saturday.
