'Enough is enough'

March 03, 2003|by NICOLE RITCHEY

As snow continued to fall Friday morning, many in downtown Hagerstown said they were tired of winter.

"I think I'm sick of it. Too much of a good thing is bad," said Lauren Carnhan, 17, of Boonsboro.

Snow has covered much of the ground since Feb. 16, when a storm that dumped nearly two feet began. Since then, more snow has accumulated as different weather systems have moved across the area.

"I would like it to just dump on us one time and be done with it," Greencastle, Pa., resident Akbar Lotfi, 44, said.

Not everyone was tired of the snow.

Kathyrn Miller, 50, of Hagerstown, said she doesn't mind the snow in the least.

"I love it. It's a winter wonderland," she said.

She was the exception of those interviewed Friday.

"Enough is enough," said Theresa Falcone, 44.


Falcone, a Hagerstown resident, said it was good weather for skiing but her work schedule kept her from enjoying the recreational activity.

"I'm ready for spring to come," she said.

Chelsea Smith, 19, of Hagerstown, also agreed that winter is overstaying its welcome.

"I don't like it because I hate driving in the snow. Spring needs to come and it needs to get here quickly," she said.

Charles Delouney, 72, of Hagerstown, said the snow was causing him problems in a different way.

"I like to make the best of it, but when you're stuck in the house you tend to eat too much," he said.
