Finally, with enough snow on the ground, kids and adults were able to take advantage of the sledding hill at East Park. Ozzie Ohl, was also making preparations to get the sledding hill at Georgia Hanford Park up and running, but much of the snow was blowing off the hill, so it wasn’t being used much (see video).
