No days like snow days

The fun ramps up when the temperatures drop!

No cabin fever here! Hudson Valley kids have been waiting for snow since last spring, even if their parents haven't. Thanks to all of you who submitted photos. If you're looking for more winter fun, check out our annual 40 Days of Winter Fun... and in the meantime, put those kids to work shoveling snow. Your back isn't what it used to be.
