Rare Snowfall Covers Central Louisiana

snow1Early this morning, this is what people in this area woke up to.

Snow – coating the lawns and rooftops.  All schools in this area cancelled classes today, which give a rare snow day for area students.  Many enjoyed making their first snowmen, having their first snowball fights and taking pictures of this snow event.  Take a look:

Travis Gaspard took a tape measure to it.

Take a look at these kids at Compton Park in Alexandria enjoying their snow day.  Sleds are hard to come by here so they improvised, using cardboard boxes and even an ironing board.  What clever kids!
