Following Thursday's six inches of snowfall in Affton and Shrewsbury, sledding hills were busy Friday morning. Whether small inclines in a subdivision, or Ackfeld Park in Shrewsbury, conditions were perfect for families to wear themselves out sliding down and walking back up many times.
With six inches of snow and no school for the day, families take to the hills in Ackfield Park.
Shrewsbury residents at Ackfield Park unanimously agree that the best part of yesterday's snow day was the sledding. Resident moms said that this is the first good snow of the year for sledding, and they are excited to bring the children out for some fun. Shrewsbury children Nian and Ainsley Knicker said that their favorite part of the day is sledding fast and spinning. "I like it when you spin and are sledding backwards," Ainsley said. Webster residents Ava, Jacqueline, Ellie, and Payton convinced Payton's mom to bring them to Ackfield Park for their day off. "We're excited for sledding and no school," Ellie says.
