Winter-weary residents learning to deal with difficult weather

Indy Snow Force will be out in full force salting and plowing roads across Marion County. A fresh fleet of 90 drivers reported for work at 11:00 pm. The plows will be out all night on the main roads and secondary streets in preparation for the Monday morning commute. 

Sunday found Brian Yeagy once again pushing snow outside the family business.

"I'm tired of this, for sure," he said.

Brian's dad Hal owns the Slippery Noodle in downtown Indianapolis, where business was slow.

"Another snow, another thing to keep people home trying to stay warm," he mused.

While Yeagy's grateful Indianapolis wasn't hit harder today, he says it's been a tough winter - especially with back-to-back storms.

"It's hard to plan. Today I had all the employees call before their shifts to make sure we were open today. It's not easy to keep everyone happy with that," he said.

Thousands of fans did make it to Pacers game, and they were rewarded with a win over the Utah Jazz 94-91 - Indiana's fifth straight victory. 

Fans were glad to see the Pacers get the win (even over hometown native Gordon Hayward, who had 21 points), but one fan commented, "It did seem a little light inside with the crowd."
While fans say they didn't have any problem getting to the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, a few were worried about getting home.

"It's good thing we have no school tomorrow! We're from St. Louis and it's snowing harder there. It's worse in St. Louis," said one fan.

Most were relieved the city escaped another major storm, except the kid just back from Florida. He wanted three feet, but his father said, "I didn't want any, I'm just tired of it being cold."
