A couple drove 86 miles with snow in the back of their truck to show it to their great-grandson for the first time. Russ Furse and Carol Nelson drove for almost two hours.
The couple recently became great-grandparents for the third time after their grandson Alex Chavers, 31, and his wife Jessie Rood, 25, welcomed their third child. They planned to visit his family, so when the first snow fell, they decided to bring him to them.
Russ, a retired police lieutenant, drove from Lake Arrowhead in California (USA) to Huntington Beach (California) in his pickup truck, covered in snow.
“It filled about 75 percent of the back of the pickup truck, so we're guessing there was about 600 to 700 pounds of snow. The kid had never seen snow before and they came to visit us anyway, so they brought it so all the kids could play,” said the boy’s mother.

Carter, who was one year old at the time, and his siblings Jacob and Adam Chavers, then 10 and 9, were delighted.
“All the kids really enjoyed it. They played in the snow, ran around, we even built a little snowman. Carter felt the snow and was delighted. He laughed and eventually even threw a small snowball at his older brothers,” she added.
