CORTLAND, N.Y. -- Although the shorts and T-shirts are out in the stores, today's weather certainly does not have people thinking spring.
People across the region pulled out their winter boots, hats and gloves for what most would consider just another day in February.
The snowfall is beginning to slow in the Cortland area, but not before the city saw about 10 inches on the ground.
Today has people hoping for an early spring and improved weather conditions.
"It's pretty brutal. I'm ready for some better weather," said Cortland resident Matthew Carle. "It's been a pretty good winter."
