Maddox Hanson frolics in the soft snow (second photo) that fell on the Greer area overnight Friday into early Saturday.

An unidentified sledder (top photo) is thrilled with her ride down a hill. And many more children and their families enjoyed the approximately five-inches of snow that was recorded in Greer in the first snowstorm of 2017.

It couldn’t have come at a better time for Maddox and other children and families as it made for a playful weekend at home.

Calvin Hanson, Maddox’s dad, reported kids were outside playing and sledding. “The first layer seems icy but underneath it is perfect for building snowmen,” Hanson said.

Roads were hazardous with snow accumulations, ice and slush making driving treacherous. Temperatures in the teens overnight Saturday will keep the roads slick early Sunday and black ice will be a concern through the weekend.
