Snow-filled day for Jasper kids
JASPER- by Haley Bull
"I though my eyes was just playing with me or something," Triston Lockwood, 17, said.
"I was surprised," Kimberlee Baetty, 17, said.
"When I looked out the window I Was like wow, it's finally snowed here," Kyndyl Shankle, 11, said.
It was a winter wonderland in Jasper Friday after the area saw around two inches of snow.
"This a shocker. This is a brand new thing experience for me," Deviun Keanebrew, 15, said.
He spent his first ever snow day with his friends in a park.
"I didn't even know how to make a snowball at first," he said. By early afternoon, Keanebrew was launching snowballs across the playground.
Kristi Statum and her daughter, Kimberlyn Carter, drove up from Buna.
"All we got was ice so we wanted to come and play in the powdery stuff," Statum said.
"It's amazing. I absolutely love it," Carter said.
They started building a snowman while 8-year old Samuel Justice showed his off.
How long did it take to build the masterpiece?
"Like an hour or so. It was some pretty hard work," Justice said.
Don't call the snowman frosty though.
"Maybe it'll be like Gary or something," he said.
It was a fun-filled snow day until the cold hit.
"It's very cold. My fingers, I feel like I don't even have any," J'Nyah Gasaway Brosson said.
"My feet feel like they're about to freeze off," Ambria Scott said.
"I lost all feeling to my hand," Deviun Keanebrew said. "We gotta go back in the house and get warm after this."
It's snow that falls only once every few years in East Texas and a snow day these kids won't soon forget.
"I just want to say that this snow is beautiful around here," Samuel Justice said.
