Winter Fatigue In The Triad

A round of golf, a jog in the park, watching some college hoops. That's what we should be doing in March! After all, we're just two weeks out from the first day of spring.

But Thursday night you found rain, sleet, snow flurries, freezing rain, and a whole bunch of people saying the same thing: enough already!

Perhaps winter fatigue hits the hardest for the maintenance crews who work to make our roads safe and passable.

"I'm tired. I got things that need to be done too. This is the worst we've seen in probably twenty years," said Mike Doub, an equipment operator with the Winston-Salem Streets Department.

Just earlier this week, cars slide off the road in Summerfield. Ice made it impossible to control your car. Vehicles were covered in snow and ice yet again Thursday night.

"Ice is the worst. I'd rather have some snow or something on the ground before the ice. The ice sticks to the pavement and it just makes it a lot harder to remove," said Doub.

Who could forget the storm of the season? Parts of the Triad had roughly ten inches of snow.

"It's the worst one we've had in a while. I know the past three or four, I mean they've been very mild so I guess we're making up for it," said Kernersville resident, Tina Lewis.

Keith Hayden is another Triad native who is ready for spring. Hayden works for UPS and told WFMY News 2's Liz Crawford this winter has been tough to make delivery deadlines.
