Frigid February

For most Washington county residents the frigid winter weather is getting old. Schools were closed on Wednesday throughout the county due to bitter cold winds and blowing and drifting snow. While some kids may have been allowed to sleep in or played video games, their parents were outside cleaning off side walks, before heading out for work or other chores. By the afternoon some, but not a lot of youngsters and young-at-heart made their way to area slopes for some snow boarding and sledding.
