Parts of the North Coast were treated to a light snowfall early this week, which allowed those fortunate to have a snow day to take to the hills for some sledding and a few snowball fights. The hill below the Astoria Column was a popular spot. The snow didn't last long as temperatures rose later in the day. But for a brief time, the North Coast had a rare winter wonderland moment.
