WAXAHACHIE (CBSDFW.COM) – No matter the weather, snowy or icy, some businesses remained opened trying to make the best of it this week with the challenging weather.
One company meeting the demands of their clients was PAACO’s in Waxahachie. They sell used vehicles. This type of weather is actually good for their business. Angelica Rivera with the automotive group said people find themselves in need of a car. “Their vehicles have stalled or you know, it just doesn’t work anymore, so they come to us. You know, we try to do anything we can to get them into a vehicle.”
Rivera didn’t get a day off due to the weather, but her 9-year-old son, Jose, did. Today was his third day out of school.
Waxahachie ISD officials originally decided to have schools start on a 2-hour delay, but then the heavy snow came down and they cancelled classes for the day.
Kids and grown-ups were all making the most of the snow.
Outside the Waxahachie Central Fire Station firefighters took their creative cues from the Disney movie “Frozen,” by creating Olaf the Snowman.
Tony Townley a Waxahachie firefighter said he and fellow firefighters were making the most of the snow and a quiet moment before another emergency call came in.
