After weeks with low temperatures below zero, warmer weather is moving into the Northland.

"This is like Miami," Dick Poellinger said.

"Today is beautiful," Grainger Scherer said. "I'm really looking forward to spring."

It's a welcome change after our brutal winter and many people are thinking spring at the 48th annual Duluth Boat, Sports, Travel and RV Show.

"Hopefully they're getting the itch," Willey's Marine's Lucas Johnson said.

The show started Wednesday at the DECC and spring fever was contagious.

"I think everyone has cabin fever, so I think everyone should come down here and start thinking summer," Link Recreation's Bob Steinway said. "I looked at the forecast; it's gong be 37 on Monday. It's starting to warm up so let's get ready and let's think summer fun on the water."

That picture Steinway is painting will be a good sales pitch this year.

"Hopefully it helps people get ready for spring," Johnson said. "(We're) sick of winter, ready to get on the lake."

The boat show will last through the weekend.

Eyewitness News even has a booth at the show and would love for folks to stop by.
