BENTON, Ark. (KTHV) - It was not your typical March Monday in Saline County, as many neighborhood streets were covered by sheets of ice.
With schools and many businesses closed, some took advantage of the day off … spending it playing in the ice or staying warm inside.
Eight-year-old Isabella Taylor said playing in the ice with no school, is win-win.
"Like from 1 to 10, it's a 9," she explained. Her plans later in the day?
"Drink hot cocoa and probably put some marshmallows in it."
Over on Chateaus Lane, Thomas McIntosh spent the day chilling - in more ways than one.
"(I've been) really lazy, been in the house, just laying down, listening to music. Not really doing too much of anything," he said."I think I may take a nap later, real busy day. And that's about it."
