Believe It Or Not - There Are Signs Of SpringPosted: Updated:
With a weather forecast of rain, sleet and snow, you may not be thinking about ice cream. But despite the weather, shops like Frosty's in Watertown are open for the season.
"With the cold weather, it's a little later this year, but we had to get open. People keep pulling in and asking when we're going to get open so we figured we would," Billy Dunn, owner.
Dunn says at this time of the year, it doesn't matter what the weather is like. People want spring and with that comes ice cream.
But Cowlick Ice Cream in the town of Pamelia has been open since the end of March. Owner Barbara Speary says business has been slow. She's hoping better weather comes as soon as possible.
"Lousy, lousy, business has been really slow. As soon as we get better weather, we'll have lines to the road and everything so hopefully soon," she said.
It's opening weekend at the Bay Drive-In Theatre. Owner Tom Wade is getting everything in place and hoping the weather holds off.
"People have been cooped up, it's been such a long winter. We haven't had any respite from the cold weather. People are just dying to get out and do something, so I think we will be busy even despite the weather this weekend. We should," he said.
It's a kick-off to spring even if it doesn't feel like it.
