CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - You better believe people are taking advantage of the rare snowfall that the Lowcountry received on Wednesday.

From building a snowman to making a snow angel, it's an opportunity a lot of people, especially kids, are seeing for the first time.

Some have even taken up unique ways of having some fun along the way.

On Wednesday, a woman in downtown Charleston captured video of Noah Stratton sledding...on a tree.

Our own Harve Jacobs even got into the spirit and caught a ride on a tube during a live segment on Live 5 News.

Anna Shealy got around downtown Charleston using a snowboard and her husky.

And of course we received a good bit of snowmen pictures.

The fun didn't stop on Wednesday as the snow stuck around on Thursday.

Michael Overcash captured video of his daughter using a boogie board to slide down a snow covered hill on the Isle of Palms.

Although the ice is preventing a lot of people from traveling it's made a good surface for some winter sports.

Joshua Kowalski captured this video of his son practicing some hockey moves down an iced over street in Summerville.

Although, those slick surfaces did cause one of our own to wipe out. Karina Bolster was being pulled in a kayak during a live report Wednesday afternoon when a turn didn't quite go as planned.

Wednesday's wintry weather was the first significant snowfall since 2010, and became the third-largest single-day snowfall record in Charleston, behind the record Christmas snowfall set months after Hurricane Hugo in 1989 and the second-place snowfall set during the blizzard of 1973.
