A white New Year’s was a reality, not a dream, in Derby – as the city recorded 5.5 inches of snow on New Year’s Day 2021.

That was just shy of the 6.5 inches of snow recorded in Wichita – the highest total accumulation on any day since 2000 and the most on New Year’s Day since records began in 1888.

Derby residents made the most of the fresh powder, whether sledding down the hills in High Park, making massive snow creations or enjoying some hot cocoa in a snow fort. Here’s a look at some individuals enjoying their snow day.
