Despite all the stories almost everyone being sick and tired of the snow there's actually of small handful of people who loved this late winter storm.
Carl Sickles, with Affordable Landscaping in Morgantown, told 5 News when the snow started to fall on Sunday night he started pacing back and forth with excitement.
Plow crews with the snow removal company were out at 2 a.m. on Monday cleaning off a number of parking lots in Monongalia County.
Sickles told 5 News on a day like Monday his crew is responsible for cleaning 20 different parking lots. He said they offer service all year round, but this late season snow storm has been a blessing.
All the snow that has fallen has kept the crews at Affordable Landscaping busy and that means a few workers will be getting bigger paychecks.
Sickles said he prefers to be working on snow removal this time of year because it keeps him out of the mud. He said he understands that some folks are sick of the white stuff, but he said he'll be around and ready to pick it all up.
"I can see their point and if I didn't do this I might go somewhere else for the winter," Sickles said. "However, with what I do, and because I like snow, I'll be right here. You can hate it all you want, but I'll be right here."
The ski industry in the Mountain State is also seeing a boost thanks to the late season snowfall.
There are three ski areas that are still open in the state and they've seen nearly five feet of snow in March.
According to officials with the ski industry, the ski resorts have added more than $250-million to our state's economy.
