INDIANAPOLIS — At "frost" glance, Thursday's snowstorm seemed to be a worst-case scenario for Indiana's police agencies

While most Hoosiers were up to their eyeballs in snow, police were up to their eyeballs in calls. But don't worry, Indiana officers, and especially their K-9s, made sure they were helping out while also having a bit of fun. 

In Danville, K-9 Jack joined hundreds of students who were doing e-learning on Thursday. The police department said Jack's classes consisted of several hours of chasing a tennis ball in the snow. 

Every dog has his day, and by the looks of it, this might have been Jack's best day ever. 

It’s safe to say that K9 Jack LOVES snow days. His eLearning consisted of several hours of chasing his tennis ball in the snow. Good boy, Jack! 🐕🎾🚔❄️

And Jack wasn't the only police pup enjoying the snow. Greenfield Police K-9 Ace took a break from patrol Thursday night to take in the snow day. 

The Greenfield Police Department shared a photo on Facebook of the very good boy with snow all over his face.

Indiana State Trooper Tubbs kicked off her day on the job with cookies that her children made to help her get through her shift. 

"Yes… I’m jealous. Those cookies look delicious," said ISP Sgt. Todd Ringle. 

Don't worry Sgt. Ringle, you're not alone. We're jealous, too.

Snowmageddon wasn't all fun and games, though. Police kept busy helping Hoosiers weather the storm. 

The roads were without a doubt a mess and if you stayed home, Avon Police say you're the real winner here. 

"Our agency staffed the uniform division with additional manpower to get through this tough storm. Road conditions are pretty rough right now, so if y'all could let us know who has best French toast, we will swing by… table for 9, Avon PD!" the department said in a Facebook post. 

If you stayed home today in this crappy weather, you the real MVP! Our agency staffed the uniform division with...

Not all Hoosiers could stay home, and those who needed to get out of the house were met with help from local law enforcement. 

Noblesville police officers Pagel and Mudd teamed up Thursday night to help with slide-offs. At one point, there were no slide-offs for them to respond to, so they grabbed their shovels and dug out cars that were buried in snow. 

Normally our officers ride solo, but #smowmageddon2022 called for a new plan of action. Ofc’s Pagel & Mudd doubled up...
