People in Michiana sick of winter weather in Spring

Posted:

Are you sick of bundling up to go outside?  You're not alone.  Our high temperature on March 21st last year was 85 degrees.  This year we only reached a brisk 29 degrees.  Michiana residents are asking where is Spring? They say it's way too cold right now.

This time last year Knollwood Country Club in Granger was packed.  The only thing on the course right now is snow.

The Mishawaka River Walk was also full this time last year with people soaking up the sun.  This year, it's nearing the end of March and the river walk is empty.

This time last year people sat outside in downtown South Bend in shorts and t-shirts.  But this year the downtown streets seem pretty desolate.  Everyone is staying warm indoors at places like the South Bend Chocolate Cafe.  "It's still too cold.  In the 20's? Noooo, we need to get warmer," said Irma Torres.

It's quite a contrast from the 80 degree temps we experienced this time last year.  "There were so many more activities to do just because of the weather." Now trying to get into spring is hard, it's hard for everyone I know cause everyone is still shoveling snow and you're still wearing jackets," said Ashley Mejia.

It is officially Spring but people in Michiana said Mother Nature could have fooled them.  "This doesn't feel like Spring at all," said Mejia.  Torres said, "I feel like it's December or January."

Sure the 80-degree golf-friendly days from last March would be nice, but at this point folks braving our winter-like spring temps said just a little boost in the mercury would do the trick.  "Hopefully they warm it up a little bit at least in the 60's or 50's," said Irma Torres.

When it comes to snow, overnight into Thursday we got just over three inches of snow.  Compare that to last year when the last measurable snowfall came on March 5th, and it was less than an inch.
