Dad Takes Kids On A Laundry Basket Sled Ride In The Snow... Because It's Texas

Given that Texas only gets an annual snowfall of about 1.3 inches, the chances of a family owning an actual sled are slim. Which means that if stormy weather shows up like it did this winter in Dallas -- and your kids want to have some fun -- you have to get creative. Dad Eric McGehearty, came up with an excellent solution.

Watch him save the snow day for his kiddos above. (We're hoping baby Claire finally got her turn too.)
