East Stroudsburg, Monroe County- School was out and fun was in as many students had a snow day Monday. “I was so happy, I was so happy,” repeated East Stroudsburg South High School student Sean Quetell.
Elementary student Chelsea Eppler smiled, “Yay!” She spent some time building a snow man and shoveling. She said shoveling was better than school because “School is too much work.”
Some kids used the break to find work. “I’m a hustler. I’m a go-getter,” said Quetell. He and two friends traveled door to door selling their snow shoveling services. "You make money. It's fun. It's a workout,” he said.
While they made money, others spent money. A pair of junior high students walked a few blocks to the grocery store from some essentials. Roy Giraldo got milk, bread, and cocoa puffs. He said, "There was nothing to do on a snow day so I don't like to sit around and play video games most of the time. I just like to be outside."
Looking at the forecast it’s likely they will end up with more time outside this week.
