“I like winter,” said James Blake, Lexington Resident.

“I’m from Bulgaria where there’s a lot of snow in the winter. We have 3 or 4 months with significant snow so it’s really exciting to see snow here,” said Lubitza Hershbeiger.

ABC36’s weekend editor, Simone McAvoy took her 3 year old son Evan outside this morning to play in the snow.

His favorite activity was playing with snowballs.

“Let’s get another snowball,” exclaimed Evan McAvoy.

Winter can be fun but Lexington Police are reminding people to be cautious especially if they’re hitting the roads.

Overnight police responded to one crash with an injury and 14 crashes with no injuries.

They recommend slowing down and increasing your stopping distance.
