    With a little ice on the ground and a day off from school, creative North Texans attempted to sled and have fun in the cold using an assortment of flat-bottomed things.

    Some methods, as you'll see below, work better than others.

    Below is a collection of videos (some sledding, some not) shared by our viewers as they enjoy the "bad weather" day.
