Taylor Michael, 10, at left, throws a snow ball at Gabriella DeMatteo, 9, at right, as snow falls around them Thursday morning during the 6th annual Snow Day at St. Gregory the Great Catholic School in Bluffton. The machine-created winter wonderland acted as a reward for students meeting accelerated reading goals set by their teachers and ended with students changing into pajamas for a "snowed-in" afternoon of reading and games.
