GREENFIELD — Phil Leswing’s solution to yet another snow day: Go sledding.
The Greenfield dad was among many local parents making the best of what has become almost a regular event this winter. With almost 7 inches of snow Tuesday night, area schools closed again Wednesday, leaving some parents scrambling to find child care while juggling work; and others enjoying a day off with their families. It was the 12th time this school year that classes have been canceled or delayed because of weather.
