The state of Georgia experienced rare snowfall on Sunday, and many Georgians were eager to take advantage with outdoor activities like sledding.
In fact, some were so excited for the outdoor fun that it didn’t even matter that none of the snow was actually sticking.
Video captured by actress Brec Bassinger, 22, shows a crowd of Georgians in a local park doing their best to sled down a hill — even though only a smattering of snow can be seen on the mostly grassy hillside.

Bassinger, who starred in Nickelodeon’s Bella and the Bulldogs and now appears in the title role in The CW’s Stargirl, captured the funny moment midday on Sunday.
‘So, I’m in Georgia. It’s snowing, it’s so beautiful. I came to the park because it’s the south, [we] don’t get to enjoy snow much,’ she tells the camera, smiling.
‘But, uh,’ she goes on, her expression dropping. ‘Someone’s gotta tell those people.’
With a smirk, she turns the camera around to face in front of her, filming a hill in the park where a large crowd has gathered.
At the top of the hill is a link of parents and children, all bundled up for the cold weather.
Several of the children have sleds — or items being used as sleds — and a few are seen making their way down the hill.
Except there are only a few small patches of snow, all shallow enough the grass is still poking through. Most of the hill, in fact, is simply covered in brown grass, with no snow at all.

Bassinger’s video has earned over a million views in less than a day as amused viewers from colder climates share their surprise
But that isn’t stopping the crowd from attempting to sled down it, and several children are seen unsuccessfully making their way down, needing to scoot and get repeated pushes from parents to move at all.
One larger person manages to make it down on his stomach.
Bassinger’s video has earned over a million views in less than a day as amused viewers from colder climates share their surprise.
‘From Michigan and never laughed so hard,’ wrote one.
‘Aww this is pitiful. Their hopes are so high!’ wrote another.
‘I live in Maine. This looks so silly. The only way to describe it,’ wrote a third, while a fourth wrote, ‘As someone from Washington, this makes me giggle.’
For her part, Bassinger joked that she was ‘thinking bout snowboarding l8er.’
It’s unclear what part of the state Bassinger filmed the video in, but some parts were, in fact, hit with quite a lot of snow this weekend (pictured: a woman in Atlanta on Sunday)
It’s unclear what part of Georgia Bassinger filmed the video in, but some parts of the state were, in fact, hit with quite a lot of snow this weekend.
According to WSBTV, parts of the state with the highest elevation got up to ten inches, though other parts saw a mix of snow and rain.
The storm, nicknamed the ‘Saskatchewan Screamer, blew through the Midwest and Eastern US, causing more than power outages, havoc on roadways, and canceled flights in several states.
Georgia, where there were more than 45,000 outrages, declared a state of emergency.
The National Weather Service reported gusts of wind reaching 50 miles per hour in the northeastern part of the state, coupled with a mix of freezing rain and snow.
