Wahpeton-Breckenridge (WDAY TV) - Overnight the valley was hit hard with snow - some, worse than others. The Wahpeton-Breckenridge are got 10 inches.

As soon as the snow stopped, Dave Berndt got started. Now he's nearly finished - but still has a long ways to go.

Dave Berndt – Blowing Snow: "This little strip and then my sidewalk over at my house."

He works nearly an hour out of Wahpeton.

Dave Berndt: "I followed a tractor trailer all the way back, 35 miles per hour."

These type of conditions are rough. Despite the travel and the digging out, he's glad it's finally here.

Dave Berndt: "Just love it. Little more than we need, but moisture for later on."

All across town you can find snow stacked six inches high. But this white stuff is kind of fun.

Jessica Munter - Sledder: "I hope we don't have school today."

Jessica's wish was granted. Kids spent the day screaming and sledding. Most area schools shut down, for getting too much of what we lacked.

Jessica Munter: "I like it because now we can go sledding. Because before there wasn't enough snow to go down the hill."

Joey Miller: "It's awesome"

Now these kids can't get enough.

Isaac Holiday: "Probably got back here and sled."

They're not the only ones planning to play in the snow.

Trevor Brown - Wahpeton: "Yeah I want to get it done quick."

After a few more sweeps over the driveway Trevor plans to ditch his shovel.

Trevor Brown: "A couple years ago, a friend of mine, we built a pretty cool snow fort. We've been looking to do the same thing a couple of months ago with the last snow storm but we didn't get as much as we hoped. If we do have enough snow we're going to be building it right over there."

When all the digging out is done, the snow day can begin.

Trevor Brown: "Little bit left here in the driveway then take care of the sidewalk then the front step."
