Go Sledding in the Upstate Safely
The first thing to remember about snow in the Upstate is that roads are commonly a problem. Before you load up your kids and sleds into the family car, check on the local road conditions. Follow any emergency requests to stay off the roads. All the sledding fun in the world isn’t worth an icy car wreck and potential injuries. Safety first!
If you are unable to get in the car and drive to a good sledding hill, check out your neighborhood or a park within walking distance. Even if your yard doesn’t have a hill, maybe the neighbor does. Many folks will happily open their snow-filled yards up to neighborhood kids doing a little sledding. Last but not least, parents don’t forget, even without a hill you can have lots of fun and laughs just pulling kids around. I promise they won’t forget the day you took them out in the yard and pulled them on a sled as you ran back and forth across the snow.
