A group in Lafayette made Johnston Street their playground on Monday morning

The group of nine, made up of young adults, were seen sledding around the roadway, pulling each other along the ice covered road near Blackham Coliseum. Maddox Schott tells KATC that the group is not used to cold temperatures like Louisiana has seen on Monday. they are making the best of the weather.

"We're not use to the cold like this in Louisiana, you just try and stay comfortable, do what we can using our free time wisely," Schott said.

This group was not the only ones to take advantage of the winter fine. Numerous people were out across Acadiana, sledding, skiing and taking a plunge. See those stories here.
