Snow days can be used for catching up on sleep.

That’s what the Red Panda at the Greensboro Science Center would recommend.

The Science Center reopened Wednesday and parents with their kids were excited to be out of the house for a little while.

Rachel Morton, a mother of two, said “We live out in the county, so no roads are scraped so we've been inside for a while.”

For Suzanne Kelly, a New England native, it was about time something opened since, in her opinion, roads are pretty clear.

“I'm at the point where I just anticipate that everything will be functioning by tomorrow,” she said.

Mike Skotcher said he had the day off, so he decided to spend it with his 2-year-old son Joe.

The icy walkways kept visitors from the zoo animals, but our camera got a sneak peak of the ones enjoying the cold and the snow.

According to Erica Brown, Media Specialist for the Science Center, the red pandas, maid wolf and the barn animals are the main ones who enjoy the colder temperatures every now and then.
