TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – The snow. The sleet.The cold. Residents in Tippecanoe County have had enough.

“I’m just tired of it,” said resident Billie Franks.

With another 2 to 4 inches of accumulation expected throughout the night Monday, many like Vanessa Elliott said they’ve grown immune to it.

“There’s been a couple of days I’ve just opened up the blinds and there’s been snow on my car,” said Elliot. “So, I’m not surprised.”

Even though residents aren’t surprised to hear the words ‘more snow’ in the forecast, that doesn’t make them any happier to hear it.

“I’m just tired of staying inside and you have no ambition to go anywhere or to do anything, because the sun’s not shining. It’s cold,” said Franks.

Many like Elliott said it’s the road conditions and hazardous driving they’re sick of.

“I can drive fine in the snow, but other people can’t drive,” said Elliott. “So, I can’t be the eyes for everybody on the road.”

Others like Purdue student Drake Filippis are simply sick of trudging to class in white out conditions.

“I think me and everyone else that goes to Purdue are just sick of the snow,” said Filippis. “We’ve been walking in it to class, and it’s just time to be over with.”

No matter the reason, almost all can agree, the snow has over stayed its welcome this season.

“I think it’s payback from this summer,” said Elliott. “So, I think we’re even now, and here comes the snow!”

Residents will get a little taste of spring this week, as temperatures are expected to climb above 50 degrees.

But don’t get your hopes up, by the end of the weekend we’ll be back down near 30 degrees.
