First snow of the season


CHAMPAIGN — Many people have a least favorite thing about the snow.

Sunday’s weather was a rude awakening for many drivers, but most got by just fine.

WCIA 3’s Emily Braun was not one of them…she got stuck in a ditch while on the road.

Towing companies and police departments were pretty busy on the first snowfall of the season.

There have been reports of accidents and stranded cars all day.

But, the kids were eager to get outside and pick a snowball fight with their parents.

Some, like 4-year-old Mia Sams, are especially looking forward to a particular winter activity.

She says she can’t wait to go sledding, but she hasn’t gone yet because her sled was in the garage at home.
