Madeline Lever, 3, warms her hands in front of a portable heater while playing in the snow with her family.

The Lever and Rewis families showed up to the big snow-covered hill beside the Columbia County Library prepared.

They brought a portable propane heater for the children to warm their hands by and a wide variety of “sleds” including a toilet seat, laundry basket, cardboard, garbage bag, a lawn mower bag and two snow discs.

“He got up this morning on a mission to find hills,” Sean Rewis said of his friend, Matt Lever.

Areas of Columbia County received up to 3 inches of snow Tuesday evening, according to Pam Tucker, county Emergency and Operations Division director.

Lever’s 3-year-old daughter, Madeline, took breaks to warm her hands between slides down the hill with her father.

“She loves it,” Lever said before they opted to load up in search of new sledding grounds. “We’ve got to find some different hills.”

A particularly large snow-covered hill at the Marshall field across from Evans Towne Center Park in Evans drew lots of sledders.

Columbia County School Board member Mike Sleeper brought this children to the field along with many other families.

“We have been having a ball,” Sleeper said.

The Galvin family came prepared, they brought a durable tube made to be pulled behind a boat. The tube, named Big Bertha, gave its passenger a big ride.

Cousins Sara Galvin, 13, and Lynzee Galvin, 17, made several runs down the large hill. It only took one big bump to send them both flying, giggling as they tumbled through the snow.

Lynzee said the choice between a snow day and simply being out of school was no contest.

“Snow day, hands down,” she said, even after a tumble off Big Bertha.

Areas of Columbia County received up to 3 inches of snow Tuesday evening, according to Pam Tucker, county Emergency and Operations Division director.
