Roads and neighborhoods were hit hard with snow here in Union County today.

Union County Public Schools were closed and will be closed tomorrow -- so what were kids to do with their free time?

Well, options were limited with roads being too treacherous to travel. The Department of Transportation in Union County sent trucks out around 9:30 a.m. to salt -- but the snow covered most primary and secondary roads within an hour.

So, many kids stayed at home, and created their own fun in the snow -- making it easy on parents.

"If you could go inside for a hot chocolate break, why go in anywhere else," Katie Caniglia, a Marvin resident said. "If they can have fun here, it works."

The Highway Patrol said they saw mainly single cars in ditches. Side roads were described as "terrible" and the only road admitted to being somewhat drivable is parts of Highway 74.

One rare accident reported was in Indian Trail where a woman made it home safely from stocking up on groceries -- but spun out entering her driveway.

Her foot slipping on the gas, she proceeded to drive through her garage door, through the wall separating her garage and dining room -- and parked in the living room.

Luckily, the woman was unharmed. Her house, however, will need quite the remodel.
