Kids enjoy the snow day outside

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– When the roads are covered in snow on a Monday and are predicted to look like this again in a day or two, city officials have no choice but to meet and prepare for the worst.

From parking bans, extra plows, to letting parents know of no school.

Ten-year-old Julia Casella isn’t complaining.

“My mom said it was good snowman building snow, so I decided to come out and build a snowman,” said Casella.

In fact, she’s putting her artistic skills to the test as she re-creates a character from a movie you may have seen recently.

“It’s Olof from the movie Frozen,” said Casella.

She printed out a picture to compare and it was impressive.

From art to let’s say gym class, News 8 caught up with these kids working up a sweat snowshoeing and sledding.

There were a few falls, but that’s to be expected.

Bottom line, parents say they’d rather not have their kids in cars or buses.

“Safety is always first. I know we many have to go to school until the end of July and I’m hoping that’s not the case, maybe these last few storms will be it for the year, but I would much rather have her home. And we do, do work. It’s not like it’s all snowman time,” said Diane Casella.
