MILLSBORO, Del.- With another snowstorm under our belts, some people say they are ready for warmer weather.

You might be surprised, but according to Tutti Frutti employee Jordan Reynolds, the business gets a surprisingly large number of frozen yogurt customers in the winter.

'They usually say something like, you probably think I'm crazy for getting frozen yogurt in the winter," she said. "And I'm like, 'eh, it happens.'"

But to get fro-yo, you have to drive there, which can prove difficult, like for Tanya Gibbs and her son KJ.

"Oh driving has been crazy, a lot of the back roads are still icy and treacherous so I'm trying not to drive very much," she explained. "Just to basic places I have to go to."

And it's not just your average driver facing problems, tractor drivers too, like at Rieley Farm in Millsboro.

"It definitely makes it a lot more difficult to keep keep water on animals, keep lanes clear for trucks to get in and out," James Rieley said. "Everything's a little harder, keeps it harder for animals to stay warm."

But the Rieley family is still enjoying winter, just looking forward to summer. 

Like little KJ.

"Cause then I could jump in a pool, and it wouldn't be ice cold," he said, and then agreed he would eat fro-yo anyway.

According to DELDOT, they will not be on the roads overnight but they do warn that motorists may encounter icy patches so they will be on call in case they need to to treat the roads with more salt.
