Jim Kraatz pushes Alice Kraatz, 5, and Hunter Rottinghaus, 9, down the hill at Stephens Lake Park on Jan. 11. Kraatz brought his two children and their friends to the park for a day in the snow.

Residents were slipping, sliding, working and playing in the inches of snow.

Scott Akers shovels a pathway to one of the homes maintained by Garry Lewis Properties on Jan. 11.
Footprints and tire tracks along this bridge on the MKT Trail show that, despite the snow, people have continued to hike and bike the trail on January 11.
Susan Freeman shovels the driveway at her home in west Columbia on January 11. Freeman, who is originally from Ohio, said she was fairly unphased by the snow, because, compared to storms in Ohio, this was "wimpy snow."
Luke Rottinghaus, 6, trudges back up the hill at Stephens Lake Park on Jan. 11. The park had approximately 50 people taking advantage of the snowy conditions and day off from school since Columbia Public Schools canceled classes for the day.
