Pasco County students get taste of 'snow'

While kids up North were bracing for a winter snowstorm, students enrolled in the PLACE program at Moon Lake Elementary in New Port Richey enjoyed their own kind of snow day over the winter break. Just add a little water to a product called SnoWonder and, in an instant, you have artificial snow.
