A six inch snow fall late Thursday and early Friday morning created a silver white wonderland in Washington County and the Omaha Metro area. Early morning light and clearing skies made for a picture perfect walk along paths at Black Elk – Neihardt Park and Arbor Park Arboretum in Blair.

Some 5th grade students had the opportunity to enjoy the snow and show their creativity on Friday before spring break, Students who were able to keep at least one ICMM ticket were invited to this snow party. ICMM stands for I Can Manage Myself. The students loved their party and created snow dogs, penguins, tunnels, snowmen, forts, castles, planes and even a stegosaurus. Who says kids these days do not know how to go outside and enjoy nature?
