Finally: a dose of fun winter weather.

 

The frigid temperatures we saw just a few days ago are gone...at least for now. So folks are skating, their skiing, their finally enjoying the season.

 

With temperatures in the upper 20s Friday, it was time to get outside and get moving.

 

Frank Bufe, hockey player: "You pray for these kind of days when it's going to warm up, it's not quite at the freezing mark."

 

Frank Bufe and his friends wanted to get in a quick hockey game at Humbolt Park before the impending snow posed a problem for their skates.

 

Jim Hilgenberg: "This is the first time I remember doing it in December in a while, actually."

 

That's because it's been so cold, the pond froze early this year. But the cold couldn't keep up with the kids taking advantage of the first weekend at The Rock in Franklin for season pass holders. Brady Lanser was revved up and rosie-cheeked from his runs down the hill.

 

Brady Lanser: "It's a lot smoother and more fast."

 

And with more snow to come, you can expect these places will be packed this weekend.Finally: a dose of fun winter weather.
