SIDNEY - Fresh snow from a winter storm this week provided a different type of playground at Legion Park in Sidney Thursday.

Several kids, enjoying their second-straight snow day from school, and their parents and grandparents hopped on their sleds and inner tubes for an afternoon of playing in the snow that measured 12 inches deep.
