South Bend, Ind. -- Michiana has a message for Mother Nature: give it a rest.
After what seems like nonstop snow since winter started, people are getting increasingly frustrated every time they see more flakes fall.
"Constant shoveling, constant shoveling, constant digging out," said Brian Martin, who works at an apartment building in downtown South Bend. "And, after I do it here, I got to go home and do the same thing."
Many residents say they've been shoveling every week, sometimes multiple times a week. And, it's quickly getting old.
"I feel like my cardiovascular health is going to be really good this winter, right?" joked South Bend resident Betsy Lucale.
In South Bend, some neighborhoods have gotten so much snow, they're running out of places to put it. The large piles at the end of some people's driveways have reached more than 6 feet tall.
"I am ready for spring," said South Bend resident Mary Frye. "I want to see the grass."
But, people who've lived in Michiana a while know they've still got some time before warmer weather hits the area.
So, they'll dream of sunny skies and shorts for the next few weeks while shoveling snow.
"Thank you, but this is enough," said South Bend resident Stuart Woodward.
