While life came to a standstill for many Franklin County residents due to heavy snow conditions last week, children near North High Street in Winchester are shown making happy memories by sledding down North Vine Street.


Heavy snowfall on Feb. 17 caused near-whiteout conditions and made driving treacherous for Winchester motorists. However, only a few days later, spring-like conditions returned to the area.
