Rockville residents venture out in the snow

ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) -- It's stopped snowing in Rockville. On Rockville Pike it's just wet, not slippery, on Tuesday afternoon.

Bruce Leshan measured the snowfall with a yardstick and found maybe a little over two inches of snow. This is wet, heavy snow and if you're one of the thousands and thousands of schoolkids that are out, it is not actually the greatest sledding snow.

"At the beginning it's hard to go down the hill but then once you pack it down, it's easier," said one person.

"I had some pretty fast runs where I crashed into the gate. It's hard to get it started but once you start getting down the hill, it gets really fast," said another person.

One bad piece of news if you love to sled: usually thousands of kids go out to Stoneridge School. It has one of the most famous sledding hills, but school officials have locked the gates.
