Eastern Carolina has a "snow day"

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - The roads around eastern Carolina have been quite a challenge Wednesday.
 
Mother Nature kept most folks home from work and the kids home from school.

Like most of eastern Carolina, it was a snow day in Pitt County and 9 On Your Side spent part of the day searching out the fun in Greenville.

There was no trouble finding a good time today.

"He was off school yesterday, but it wasn't the same without the snow. Now it's official he has a real snow day," said Wigent.

And the snow day continues to a snow night.

"We'll probably try to make some snow cream,” said Cook. “We have some desserts to make at home so we can get warm after this and enjoy some treats. Hot chocolate."
