When Will Winter End?

For the past three weeks Michiana has been hit with some wicked weather.

“I usually like snow but when there's this much of it, it is just a hassle to get from here and there and since my grandma is from Florida and she just drove me to the movies, she is not really used to it so it's kind of hard for her to adjust,” says Ian Rosenberg.

When the snow piles up, the lines at the movies theater seem to get longer. At Movies 14 in Mishawaka the theaters have been packed with people trying to cope with the weather.

“Either they stay inside and huddle in the house... or they find stuff to do inside like going to the movies,” says Renee Rodman who was visiting the theater.

And sometimes to seek warmth when mother nature doesn't give it to us people will find it from an artificial source.

At Malibu Tanning February and March are their busiest months of the year. Managers say people come in looking to get ready for spring break or to beat the winter blues.

“A lot of people come in for heat therapy just to feel better with the light. A lot of people have depression in the winter time,” says Faith Montgomery from Malibu Tanning.

The winter blues have an official name called Seasonal Affective Disorder or "SAD"

Experts say more people have it than they realize because most see it as just dealing with winter's wicked ways.

There’s only a little more than a month of winter left though because the first day of spring is March 21st.
