GLEN ALLEN, Va. (WTVR) – With much of Central Virginia shutdown by winter weather, some families spent Thursday outside in the snow, building snowmen.

For one Henrico family, the joy of building a family of snowmen quickly turned frustrating.

“We just spent an hour building our family of snowmen,” the mom wrote.

Minutes after she and her children went inside, it happened.

“We saw someone take off running. They knocked over almost everything,” the mom continued. “I took off running [after the snowmen murderers], but I couldn’t catch them.”

After catching her breath and consoling her upset children, the mom created a sign that now sits where the family of snowmen once stood.
