While this spring snowstorm has many people begging for warmer weather, believe it or not, some people aren't sick of it.
"One more day of snow is one less day of mowing the lawn," UMD Professor John Pastor said.
We caught up with Pastor as he was walking home from campus. It's a 20 minute walk and he said he doesn't mind the snow.
"I think this was a beautiful winter," Pastor said. "It was great. The snow didn't melt; it was nice and clean and white the whole winter."
Pastor is not alone. We found another Duluth man snowshoeing and walking his dog.
"Winter lasted a little longer than expected, but it's been fun," Richard Jacobsen said.
Don't worry, you haven't gone crazy. There are still many people who want winter weather to end, especially in the middle of April.
"It's pretty depressing," Jordan Vlastuin said. "I'm ready for summer. All winter it was pretty brutal."
