Some Can't Wait for Snow on Delmarva

Posted:

GEORGETOWN, Del.- Snowy weather can make it tough to get around but some business owners say a little of the white stuff helps their bottom line.

"I'm hoping to see it get cold, it's good for business it keeps our manpower busy and it keeps our employees very active in the community, in doing service work and repair work," said Ernie Hyatt.

Hyatt owns a refrigeration company in Sussex County and says the mild winter we saw last year hit his business hard. He's cold for a snowy cold season.

"Unless it gets cold we don't get breakdowns, then we don't have equipment to replace," he said. "Equipment expires once it gets so many hours and unless we get a lot of operating hours nothing is gonna break."

But it's not just business that depends on snow, he says he wants the wintry weather so families can come together.

"I think it's a good opportunity for people to get inside and get cozy and visit with one another," Hyatt said. "Fellowship instead of being out and about and not being interested in what's going on close to home."
