Two girls find 'snow much fun' in winter wonderland

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) - For some, the winter weatherhas been snow fun at all, but for others it's been a winter blast.

The winter blast, Snowmageddon, Snowpocalypse, or whatevername you might call it, has meant closed bridges and businesses, and changingplans. But what is a pain for some is a joy for others.

That means while school is out, fun is in.

"School is canceled! We want to be here because if we wereat school, we'd miss all this fun winter wonderland," said 7-year-old BrennaStone.

"We're from Pennsylvania so we're used to it, but it's thenovelty of seeing the bridge with no people on it, seeing other people out andaround," said Brenna's mom, Sherri Sparrow.

It may be a novelty, but the sight is certainly a rarity,but for the few brave souls braving the cold, memories have been made andexperiences have been had, including Comet, who saw snow for the first time.

Comet was not a fan.

"Anytime we have snow here, we're going to call it thewinter wonderland," said Stone.

The winter weather in the Lowcountry is anything buttypical, but it was most definitely memorable for two girls with an icyplayground to themselves - even if there wasn't enough snow to build a snowman.

A group of students - kids at heart, for sure - embodied theStone girls' sentiments across the Ravenel Bridge in Marion Square.

{}A couple hundredpeople found the invite on Facebook and ran to the center of the city Wednesdayafternoon to throw snowballs at each other.
