Snowfall Sends Sledders, Snowboarders to Area Hills

Area children and adults took advantage of freshly fallen snow Saturday, Feb. 2, and visited area sledding hills including Veteran Acres Park in Crystal Lake.

The Friday evening snowfall wasn't too impressive - only somewhere between 2 to 3 inches - but it was enough to send area children, teens and adults flocking to area sledding hills on Saturday.

431 Walkup Rd., Crystal Lake, was packed with sledders and  snowboarders.

By Saturday afternoon, much of the snow had been worn away and the grass could easily be seen. But the hillside was slick and icy, and sledders had no problem gaining speed on their way down the slope.

The National Weather Service snowfall totals for Northern Illinois reported 3.2 inches of snow recorded in Woodstock, about 2.4 inches in Bull Valley and 2.6 inches measured in Algonquin. No recordings were available for Crystal Lake and Cary.
