I think it’s safe to say that winter has arrived. 

When recent snow, ice and freezing temperatures lead to widespread school delays and closings, children spent their days off sledding, throwing snowballs, making snow angels and trying to recreate scenes out of the movie “A Christmas Story.” 

While Cathy Lindsey helped her daughter Ella Simpson sled down a hill near their house, a group of Second Street School (Frankfort Independent) students made their way to the Capitol Annex to sled and roll down the steepest hill they could find. 

If you’re not a fan of snow and the cold, 2018 may not be off to the best start. But if you like trying to stick your tongue to a freezing pole, you couldn’t really ask for a better time.
