Hiking and snow boarding on San Juan — What did you do? | Multi media

Many islanders woke up this morning to several inches of snow.

In my neighborhood in Hannah Heights, snow reached 7-inches by mid-morning.

After getting stuck in the driveway, I decided to set out on foot to see more of this “Winter Wonderland.” Down near the neighborhood’s private beach Kathy Oberreit and her three daughters took a stroll in the snow, enjoying a day off of school.

They spent the rest of th e day playing board games and sipping cocoa. I decided to test out my snowboard on the fresh powder on a nearby hill. What did you do today? If you have pictures or want to share your snow story send an email to

Snow on Wednesday is expected to change to rain, which could result in extremely heavy loads on roofs. Keep a close eye on car ports, sheds, and other structures prone to collapse.
