Michiana digs out a day later


Michiana became buried under a blanket of white.

Once the snow finally stopped falling, it was time to dig out.

Some cleared just enough to get to work, but once they got home, it was time to finish up.

Phil Hite hopes Wednesday was the last time he has to crank up his snowblower.

"Yeah, it's heart attack stuff," says Hite,"You can feel it the next day."

It's not just his own home Hite digs out, he also helps his neighbor across the street.
But he doesn't mind.

"We dodged two before this. We live in Northern Indiana. This isn't too big a deal," says Hite.

Not everyone agrees.

"It just sucks. It's nasty. I hate everything about winter," says Adam Clemons. He clears snow as a side job. He'd been shoveling for more than 12 hours.

"I love the money, but I hate the work," says Clemons.

Neighborhood kids enjoyed the snow. FOX 28 caught up with a group building tunnels in large piles.

Since the snow is heavy and wet, we checked with Memorial Hospital and MedPoint walk-in clinics. We're told they haven't seen patients with any snow shoveling injuries.
