HOLT —  The Broxson family didn't let the icy cold weather conditions keep them inside on Wednesday. With county schools and a majority of offices closed due to inclement weather conditions, the family used the day off to their advantage.

 Both David and Patrick used the day to split firewood for their side business, Wood Brothers.

 David Broxson said business has been good.

"We are doing what we can to keep up," he said.

The brothers said they constantly received phone calls from interested residents during the past few days.

 David said he and his brother started the side business in December of last year, selling 26 truckloads of firewood. So far this year, the brothers have sold nearly 60 loads.

Both brothers decided to brave the elements and continue to split wood at Patrick's Holt residence.
