A handful of families from around town decided to make the most out of their day off from school for Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday of this week at Ridgewater College, as folks gathered to shred some of the freshly-fallen snow from the most recent snow event that blazed through Kandiyohi County last Friday.

Temperatures rose to the low 30s, making the morning outing much more bearable than in recent frigid weeks around Willmar.
