Snow blog: Kids rejoice, dogs romp as snow blankets NC

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Kids across North Carolina rejoiced on Wednesday as schools were out and sleds were in after a heavy snowstorm swept across the state.

WNCN meteorologist Alyssa Corfont found children joyfully sledding near N.C. State University and promptly joined in on live TV.

But unfortunately, Corfont's sled veered left and knocked the person to the ground.

Hey, Alyssa is from Pennsylvania - shouldn't she be an expert at this?

Later, she had more success, flowing down the hill with no trouble - and no accidents.

Meanwhile, sledding familiar scene across the state as the snow from Tuesday night left plenty of snow and ice on roads. Kids and parents quickly headed to the hills – well, at least the hilly streets.

 

Wednesday was also a joyful day for many dogs. In Raleigh's North Hills neighborhood, Dexter, a 1-year-old Great Dane, romped in his first snow as the Guillory family watched him play.

Dogs and puppies around the Triangle ventured into what was the first snow for many, gingerly testing their steps before, in many cases, getting the hang of it.

Many viewers have shared their photos with WNCN, and we welcome more at newstips@wncn.com or on Twitter @WNCN.

Cancelations: Winter in North Carolina means ACC basketball, and as of 11 a.m., the games were still on.

The University of North Carolina is scheduled to play Georgia Tech in frozen Atlanta at 7 p.m. That game, as of Wednesday morning, was scheduled to be played despite the brutal traffic problems in Atlanta.

In the Triangle, Florida State is at N.C. State at 9 p.m. That game remains scheduled to be played, according to the N.C. State website as of late Wednesday morning.

Doors open to the public at the PNC Arena at 7:30 p.m.

Good laugh from WCPSS Twitter feed: One of the most fun Twitter feeds in the Triangle is, of all things, at the Wake County Public School System.

Of course, there were no schools Wednesday, which only sparked the system's sense of humor. Here is what they tweeted out:
