It wasn't long ago we were dealing with lots of snow and the bitter cold. With months upon months of snow, some say we're long over due for warmer weather.

"It's so wonderful compared to what we've had this winter. it just makes you want to get out and do things outside," said Deborah Haas. "I'm cleaning up all the leaves I didn't clean up this fall and I'm trying to get things in the bags while it's free leaf pick up."

Even ice cream parlors say the warm weather brings more customers out and creates boost in their bottom lines. "I anticipate it to be the busiest day so far this year. We're ready for it," said Dairy Queen manager, Karlene Lindorfer. "We are going to be busy. I got in early to decorate as many cakes as I could."

Customers say it's the perfect day to go for a cold treat. "We went for a bike ride and thought we'd stop and get ice cream. nice day. nice weather," said Dairy Queen customer, Ron Swanson.

Whether you're bicycling, walking or simply out getting fresh air, some are just happy this weather doesn't have you singing the blues.
