WAYLAND (CBS) – Friday may have been the hottest day of the year, but that didn’t stop dozens of kids from hitting the slopes with their sleds in Wayland.

Friday morning, Brookline Coal and Ice dropped off 4,000 pounds of crushed ice so Wayland Public School system’s summer school program could hold its second Annual Snow Day.

With temperatures expected to climb past 100 degrees, the kids were a little concerned.

“I think it would melt in one second,” said one student.

The snow was melting, but the melt was slow enough that it was expected to last into the afternoon.

In the meantime, everyone seemed to be having a blast, including parents like Julie Ellen Burgin.

“I think it’s fantastic,” Burgin said. “We just came down from New Hampshire, where it was very, very hot. So we’re very excited about it.”
