    Six Flags Over Texas Aims to Break World Record for Biggest Snowball Fight
    Giles Lamar laughs while throwing a snowball in Oxford, Miss. on Sunday. Most people aren't in such good spirits. A large portion of the country, including the normally balmy South, is suffering through blizzard conditions as we get set to enter Spring.

    Even though Texans are not used to the snow, Six Flags is having its national snow day and parks across the country are attempting to break the record for world's largest snowball fight.

    Six Flags Over Texas will open registration tables to participate in the snowball fight on Saturday Dec. 9 at 10:30 a.m. Participants will then head to the Looney Tunes section where the event will take place.

    Following the event guests will be allowed exclusive ride time for some of the rides in the park as well as the opportunity to meet and greet the Looney Tunes characters. 

    Canada holds the current world record of 8,200 participants with real snow. However, Six Flags aims at reaching 9,000 participants with fake snow.

    An Arizona dog in a two-feet deep canal who couldn't climb out was rescued, but wiggled out of his leash leading rescuers to try to catch him as he ran through traffic. After 30 minutes, a good Samaritan was able to corner him. Fortunately, the dog is micro-chipped and will be returned to its owner.
