While it doesn't feel like it, spring is here. If you still can't believe it, another sign Tuesday in Cloquet.

Gordy's Hi-Hat opened in Cloquet for its 54th season. They're only open from spring to fall, and with the weather we had on April Fool's Day some people couldn't believe it.

"With the snow here, I did have a lot of people calling wondering if we were just fooling," Gordy's President Dan Lundquist said. "We're open. Rain, snow, sleet, we were going to open today."

Lundquist said he was overwhelmed with the amount of support on such a snowy opening day. When our crew was there, the dining room was packed proving mother nature can't stop people from getting a good burger.
