GRAND BLANC, MI (WNEM) -

Phillip Hawes is a senior at Flint Kearsley High School.

"I was happy first of all because of a day off and everything but i wanted to come to the bowling alley to practice for states," Hawes said.

He's glad to have an unexpected day off from class thanks to the wild winter weather we're having.

"I love school but I love bowling more," Hawes said.

Hawes is on the school bowling team. They're trying to three-peat as state champions.

Amy Rouse is with Grand Blanc Lanes. She's glad her business is open for bowling enthusiasts like Hawes.

"It's alright I guess,” Rouse said. “I mean we haven't had too much business today but we had a league that decided they were going to brave the storm and come bowl so it's nice to be able to give people an option."

Rouse said she wondered if the bowling center would stay open because of the heavy snow and strong winds. But inside it's 72 degrees with no wind. And for now, they're open.

"If you're out and about stop on in. We have plenty of lanes available," Rouse said.

There's still the task of driving home in this. But Hawes said he'll deal with that task after knocking down a few more pins first.

"No I'm not too worried but just got to be careful on the roads," Hawes said.
