People in North Platte are celebrating the first day of 2014 with snow!
"We were just excited to get up this morning and see some snow because we hadn't seen some in so long," said Jennifer Prince of North Platte.
Prince took several kids to hit the snow hill in North Platte at Cody Park.
"It's been so warm and stuff I sorted wanted a little snow," said Lily Mixer.
Mother nature made up her mind and blanketed the area with snow, but it was a different story the last several weeks. Much of December saw temps in the 40's and 50's.
"I don't think we can appreciate the warm days as much without these cold days you gotta get all aspects of it," said Prince.
One aspect is sledding.
"It's fun to sled because you can go really fast down the hill," said Elli Prince.
