Kids take advantage of school snow day

Most of the snow has melted away around Las Vegas valley but some neighborhoods still had some left Friday morning -- and kids took advantage of it.

Clark County School District canceled classes for the day. Although school wasn't in session, sledding was.

"We just wanted to come and play with the snow that we have left," said Sebastian Martinez, who was enjoying a rare snow day.

Sledding proved to be a bit difficult with only patches of icy snow left at Fox Hill Park in Summerlin. But it wasn't impossible.

One little fellow used an inflatable shark.

No doubt, it probably would have been easier the day before. This part of the valley got more than 7 inches of snow from the recent winter storm.

Meanwhile, large snowballs were left behind, presumably pieces of a snowman. Moving a heavy icy boulder became a bit challenging.

"There's like a lot of snowballs out there that I think we're trying to make a snowman so we're just gonna try and get some of those and put them on top of this to create a snowman," said Ivy Feuerborn.

Kids and adults were making the best out of this rare weather event in the valley.

Some are sad to see it go.

"I want it to keep going," said Matt Miller, who was enjoying the snow with his son. "I want another huge storm next week. We can hope right?"
