Mar 12, 2014

While this latest winter storm found Ypsilanti residents out shoveling snow this morning, they seemed to be trying to find the positive side.

Jennifer Hackett was clearing snow on South Huron Street. She said the snow fell on a day when she didn't have to make her usual drive into Detroit's northern suburbs, so she was happy for that.

Along Harriet Street, Anthony Scott  was shoveling a driveway and sidewalk for a little extra cash.  He said this has been an excellent winter for making money shoveling snow.
