    With a little ice on the ground and a day off from school, creative North Texans attempted to sled and have fun in the cold using an assortment of flat-bottomed things.

    People who couldn't go to work or school took advantage of the burst of extreme winter weather this week — a wintry mess that is more common elsewhere in the country during the season but that is less frequent across North Texas.

    Some methods, as you'll see below, work better than others.

    Below is a collection of videos (some sledding, some not) shared by NBC 5 viewers as they enjoyed the spate of "bad weather."
