Families find ways to enjoy the winter weather




BLUEFIELD, Va (WVVA)-- Many of you may prefer to stay inside where it's warm and toasty, but there are always those who brave the cold outside.

And these frigid temps are also keeping the snow from melting in many areas.

We spoke with some people out working hard to clear the snow and ice-- and some even having a little fun while it's still here.

Families like the Fortunes, who we spoke with out in Bluefield, say coming out here and shoveling isn't so bad-- especially when you're together doing it.

But we also found a family taking full advantage of the winter wonderland, hitting the hillside for some prime sledding.

They said this was a perfect day to get in a little snow day fun.

"We brought our sleds because we thought it would be a good day to get some sledding in, which they enjoy but don't get to do very much," said Jim Al-Hussaini.

This family was actually vacationing at Winterplace, but took a detour on their way home to sled on the hill at Bluefield College.
