(ABC 6 NEWS) – As we move through the day, more snow is expected to fall. Even through it’s what Midwesterners know best, people are having to adjust as it’s been awhile since we’ve seen weather link this. 

“I’m happy out here, I just wish it was more,” Rochester resident Elliot Mainz said. 

Wait what? That guy wants MORE snow?

“I prefer winter over summertime, how’s that,” Mainz said. 

Elliot runs his own snow removal business. He wants to try and get to 30 driveways. Now he’s at number eight.

“This is something I do so I can provide for someone who may not like the winter,” Mainz said. 

“It’s pretty , but I’m not driving in the snow,” Rochester resident Tricia Furlow said. 

This crossing guard is keeping bust. After all, she remembers all of her kids names.

“I prayed we wouldn’t get it but here we are,” Furlow said. 

With school closures adding up, she hopes to see her kids.

“I think they’re not coming, I feel nice and warm, I’m ready to cross them,” Furlow said. 

She’s there for them, no matter what. Snow or clear skies.

“They’re in good hands! I tell them that,” Furlow said. 

The positive energy these two have resonates. We can get through anything.
