City crews take care of the streets, but homeowners have to tackle the driveways and sidewalks many times this season already.

"It's getting to be a real pain," said Chris Lindell, shoveling snow in Davenport. "I'm ready for spring. I've had enough snow now. I know the groundhog said we're supposed to get six more weeks of this, but I'm done. I've had enough."

Lindell isn't the only one in the QCA who can't wait for the snow to melt, but he's still out in the freezing cold helping his neighbors, his mom and a woman trying to sell her house.

He's already shoveled her driveway and sidewalk seven times, just this winter. 

"It's getting tiresome," said Lindell. "She's probably tired of paying me. So, she's probably ready for spring too!"

Just down the street another neighbor gears up to get the snow off her driveway on her school snow day. 

"I didn't have school today and I'm just outside trying to help out my parents in shoveling the driveway," said Jasmine Harris. "I don't mind it as long as we don't have school."

Another man from Moline said this is the first time he's had to break out his snow blower this winter. He said he can usually clear everything with a shovel, but with the inches of snow and wind he broke out the big guns.

"Today was excessive," said Kenneth Fuller. "I spent 20 minutes just shoveling and then I got so tired I had to go in and later I came out and I had to take the snow blower and it was another 20 minutes, because I do not just my house, but the next two houses down."
