Today's half-inch of snow (the first of the season) was a long time coming - but it timed itself beautifully, in the minds of Ann Arbor's sledding set. Although it wasn't deep, it had the twin virtues of being deceptively slick - and of being on the ground while school children holidayed between semesters. Taking advantage of it in descending order this morning were Sue Kiddle, 11, of 431 Crest Ave.; Billy Thompson, 7, of 500 Crest Ave.; David Dunlap, 7, of 1301 Lutz Ave.; and Mary Ellen Kiddle, 9, of 431 Crest Ave. The "hill" is at Lutz and Crest Aves., and the snow was there by courtesy of the elements which promised a freezing drizzle tonight and higher temperatures tomorrow - but no more snow.

WELL, HE WANTED TO TOBOGGAN: James O'Sullivan, jr., 20, of 1402 Maywood Ave., could well have eyed longer the direction sign and less the snow-capped slopes of the Nichols Arboretum as he drove through the park about 10 a.m. today. Looking for a place to go tobogganing, O'Sullivan allowed his car to slide from the roadway. Although originally proceeding in the specified direction, O'Sullivan soon was headed in another.

LOVE THAT SNOW! The first "staying" snow brings glee to the faces of children as they take their first slides. That's the way it was with 2 1/2-year-old Elizabeth Ford, daughter of University Prof. and Mrs. George W. Ford, 1058 Martin Pl., as she used her saucer in Burns Park this morning. More snow will help speed up matters.
