Augusta fun by Emma H (WRDW-TV)
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- The snow rolled in Tuesday night and hundreds of kids woke up Wednesday to find a winter wonderland.
Piper Williams is in kindergarten, and she couldn't wait to see the snow.
"I first got to see it in the morning, and I woke my mom up first," she said.
For kids in the south, when it snows, it opens up a whole new world of sights, sounds, and even tastes.
"I went out, and I played, and I ate the snow," she said, "It tasted like zucchini. I ate it off my dad's car."
After her healthy breakfast of 'zucchini flavored snow,' Piper and her family hit the hills, using a boogie board as a makeshift sled.
"It felt like I was just flying on the ground," she said.
Kids used everything from trash can lids and pool floats, to clothes hampers and pizza boxes, to sled down snowy hills all day.
And while many hit the hills, others spent their day crafting the perfect snowman, all part of the fun on a rare snow day in the CSRA.
