CLEVELAND, OH (KERO) — While most people were out with shovels and snowblowers, a mother-daughter duo was out with their dogs.

Amy Onyak and her daughter Ellie have been participating in sled dog racing for years. When they woke up to a white Christmas they decided to make the best of it by enjoying a ride in the streets of their neighborhood outside of Cleveland. The family said it was so special to have several inches of fresh snow for fun.

"All of our neighbors were out trying to shovel themselves out, and they were just laughing because they know that we do it. It was a magical surprise, to wake and see all this awesome snow and just be able to have fun outside, especially with everything that's going on now, we're just trying to make the best of it," said Onyak.

The family usually travels from Ohio to Michigan for races, but they can't compete this year because of COVID-19.
