Poll results in ‘crazy’ response from readers

Majority of votes in latest online poll want spring to arrive, like last month

As the ‘winter that never seems to end’ shows no signs of letting loose its grip on central Alberta, respondents to the latest online poll show people aren’t too ‘crazy’ about it.

When asked, ‘To what level are you sick of winter?’, eight out of the 13 total votes (62 per cent) indicated they’ve been going stir crazy waiting for the snow to melt as compared to three votes (23 per cent) who stated they just deal with the weather as it comes.

The other two votes were split between people waiting weeks for warmer temperatures and it doesn’t bother people since spring will evenutally show up.
