Families, Pets Have Fun In Snowstorm

By David Schultz

Eight-year-old Charlie Morey has a rocket ship decal on his plastic sled. He likes to go fast. "One, two, three - here I go!" he yells as he shoves himself down a hill.

Charlie, his siblings, his parents and his dog Cooper are at Chevy Chase Elementary School in Montgomery County, Maryland. They're taking advantage of yesterday's early-season snow storm that dropped several inches on the D.C. region.

Charlie says he's developed a fool-proof method for successful sledding: "You get on the sled. And then you find a steep enough hill. And then you go down; it's very, very simple," says Morey.

Charlie's only regret is that the snowstorm didn't cancel a school day.
