Many people across the Northland are digging out once again, but some areas had it worse than others. Eyewitness News went out to Ashland where there was more than a foot of snow in some parts of town.
We found Richard Starosta snowblowing Thursday. He doesn't stop at his sidewalk; he clears the way for his neighbors.
"It's something I've done for years," Starosta said. "I got the snowblower and they don't have one."
It's hard work when you're clearing off half a block that's a foot high.
"The snow is wet and heavy," Starosta said. "That makes it hard to do."
Some work outside beats the alternative for some. School was canceled for Ashland Schools.
"I got to sleep in," high school student Hunter Weber said.
We also found some kids making snow angels and building snowballs.
While not everyone is as excited about the white stuff, others have just learned to call it home.
"I like it here," Starosta said. "I really do."
