It's every kids' dream; up to a foot of snow and all the time in the world to play in it.

"I was like saying, 'yea, school's out'," fifth grader Liberty Martin said.

Many Northland schools had a snow day Tuesday, but Martin was using her free time wisely.

"I shoveled her front because she shoveled mine last night," Martin said.

A difficult feat, when snow banks are bigger than you are.

"It's wicked actually," Martin said. "I've never seen it like this before."

Not everyone was enjoying the dumping of snow, Donny Degeberg said snow means more work than play.

"It's terrible," Degeberg said. "It's too wet; it's too heavy."

Many cars in Duluth were buried this morning forcing people to dig themselves out. Nicholas Blix was using a snow blower, but he said he enjoys the white stuff.

"Love it, absolutely love it," Blix said. "It's time to get out and play and have some fun in the snow."

"I like how fast you can go on the sleds and it's super deep," fourth grader Jonah Kaspari said.
