ROELAND PARK, Kan. -- The first week of spring brought snow to many parts of the metro. The snow arrived as families were traveling to Easter morning church services.

Despite the poor road conditions, the weather did not stop the crowds from arriving at St. Agnes Church in Roeland Park.

On Sunday morning, children found snow, instead of the Easter eggs, in the grass outside the church.

Sy Griggs has been attending the church for nearly fifteen years. She said she was surprised by the lack of seats on this white Easter.

"I was expecting those people who usually just come to church on Easter would just stay home. But when we came the parking lot was still packed. So I was a little surprised at that," said Griggs.

While the weather made for earlier wake up calls and longer drive times, many people said changing their holiday traditions never crossed their minds.
