Hudson Valley families enjoy winter weather

Posted: Updated:

The snow-covered icy roads in the Hudson Valley may have made for a difficult commute Tuesday, but some families made the best of it by enjoying the outdoors.

Many local schools were closed, and 7-year-old Eliana, from Monroe, made the most of her day off by snowtubing and sledding.

DPW crews meanwhile, worked around the clock, salting and sanding the road, as parts of Orange County saw around 5 inches of snow.
