It's been a while since Cedartown residents have seen wintry white flakes and local children made sure it didn't go to waste. Friends Tripp Ivy and Joshua Bray attempted to make snow angels in the dusting of snow that fell on the lawns in their neighboorhood Wednesday.Morgan Martin, and her step-brother Chandler McDermott, ran around in their yard, delighting in the fat flakes that fell Wednesday.
Though they were all hoping for a snow day Thursday, Polk School District officials said they're not making the call until early tomorrow morning concerning the cancellation of classes. (Note to readers: Check back on this Web site Thursday morning for the official ruling)
