UTICA, N.Y. - Even though most of us are used to this winter weather, people in Utica are getting tired of the snow, and others are choosing to look on the bright side.

WKTV went to Price Chopper in Utica to ask locals "Are you sick of the snow?"

"Yeah, I'm kind of used to it, Upstate New York," Terry Ambrose said. 

"Yes, absolutely, I am sick of the snow," Dashann Figures said. "Tired of it."

"Actually I'm not, I'm glad to have what I consider a normal winter," David Sbiroli said. "It makes you appreciate spring more and this is what we expect."

Right now it doesn't feel like it, but spring is right around the corner. 

"I am looking forward to spring though, just being able to get outside and go do things on my property," Sbiroli said.

"I'm definitely looking forward to spring and summer," Figures said. "That way I can be able to enjoy myself. I like to play basketball outside and I can't do that right now."

For some people, the snow is an issue, but for others, it's just another day in Upstate New York.

"It's expected, we live here, it's what we know," Sbiroli said. 

"Just another day here," Ambrose said.
