<p><strong>Brian Pilgrim,</strong><br /><strong>Corner Brook</strong></p> <p>I’m originally from up the coast so I’m used to the snow but it’s not usually this late. It’s not too bad because I’m into ice fishing, so where the winter is long you get that last kick at the can. I love that.</p>

<p><strong>Jenine Kerrivan, </strong><br /><strong>St. John’s</strong></p> <p>It’s not really disrupting my plans, it’s just that there’s not really anything exciting going on because it’s just too cold. I didn’t necessarily believe in the winter blues until this year. I literally had to kick myself in the butt to go to the gym and feel alive again.</p>

<p><strong>Kayla Decker, </strong><br /><strong>St. Anthony</strong></p> <p>It hasn’t really effected me but I just dread winter — I hate it. I don’t ski or snowmobile, I’m more of a sun and water person. It’s kind of discouraging to see so much snow still down.</p>

<p><strong>Matthew Walsh,</strong><br /><strong>Pasadena</strong></p> <p>I’m not much of a winter person so this definitely changes my plans. I usually start golfing in the middle of May but that’s probably not going to happen this year.</p>

<p><strong>Rodney Mercer, </strong><br /><strong>Corner Brook</strong></p> No it hasn’t effected my plans. Not at all. I’m an all-seasons person and weather is one of those things you can’t change. So I just live my life no matter what the weather is.

<p>Todd Currie, <br />Steady Brook</p> <p>It’s just a long, long winter. I drive a snowplow and it’s been cold and snowy this year. I just got laid off for the summer a week ago, which is later than usual, but I’ll be back.</p>

After a long, snowy winter in western Newfoundland, spring will likely arrive later in the region than in the past several years.
