County residents: More snow not that big of a deal


Anderson resident Georgia Roberts went to the grocery store to pick up a few small snacks and some books. With forecasts calling for up to 10 inches of snow in the area, many store shelves were bare on Sunday afternoon. Roberts, who retired on Dec. 31, said the snow hasn't melted on her property since the day she retired. But she doesn't mind.

"I'm fine with it. I love to read, so as long as I have a cup of coffee and a good book, I don't mind," Roberts said.

Robert Holland, who just got out of the hospital, visited a pharmacy to pick up some medicine on Sunday. He said he didn't mind the weather too much, and he was just happy the roads weren't too bad in the afternoon. A few inches hit Sunday morning before a larger storm covered the region at night.

"Seasons change. It's Indiana. In one week, you can have every season of the year," Holland said. "Just so happens, we're having a bad winter. It'll melt pretty soon."

But not everyone was so nonchalant about it. One place that kept its doors open regular hours Sunday was the YMCA on Jackson Street. Jake Skinner of Anderson said he's ready for winter to be done. Skinner was taking his boys Alex and Zachary to the pool to get some physical activity in before the expected storm.

"It's been an adventure this winter," Skinner said.

Henry Landry and Shekria Vanbuskirk were heading to the Anderson Public Library for a few hours of studying and reading before the storm. Vanbuskirk said she's fed up and ready for warmer weather. Landry, on the other hand, said he can't get enough of the snow.

"In a couple of months, people will be complaining it's too hot. You can't please people," Landry said. "Bring it on."
