Many residents hunker down and enjoy a snow day

Both families ventured outside to let their dogs run around.

"The dogs are trying to eat the ice," Tucker said. "At first they thought they wanted to go out to use the bathroom but they stuck their nose out and decided to stay inside."

Janice Marcus said it was entertaining to see how her collies reacted to the ice that coated her Crestview backyard.

"I'm watching the puppy dogs play," she said. "They like the 'crunch-crunch' sound. My dogs are having a ball. I'm freezing to death but they're just racing each other. They're having a blast."

While Eglin Air Force Base, most businesses, and state, county and local offices were closed, not everyone appreciated having an unexpected day off.

Tucker, who owns a home-cleaning service, said she had to cancel scheduled appointments for the day, and when she's not working, there's no money coming into the household.

"I rescheduled one that got cancelled for next week," she said. "I'm missing work today. Hopefully next week will be better."
