It's officially spring but instead of talking about flowers and sunshine, we have snow and cold.

This is the fourth nor'easter in three weeks to hit the east coast.

Flights are canceled and schools are closing and delaying.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey spent Wednesday morning in lower Luzerne County and Schuylkill County.

"Yes, I'm over it. I'm ready for spring and ready to do some outdoor activities," said Elanie Murray of Tamaqua.

Schuylkill County is one of several southern counties expected to get the majority of the snowfall in our area.

In typical winter fashion, the weather stalled the morning commute for some including on Route 61 in Pottsville. No one was seriously hurt in this crash.

It's not just people who are over this but also school districts, including Pottsville Area. Employees tell us they've had enough.

"We have to come in no matter what," said John Verchick, Pottsville Area HS maintenance staff. "I hope this is the last. I think students hope it's the last, teachers hope it's the last. I think we've all had enough."

"This is not spring. It's still winter, very, very cold. I want spring back please!" said Tiffany Rothermel.
