Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Thursday's snow storm was one to remember.

It had people digging out, and likely saying a few choice words to old man winter, under their breath.

With winds whipping snow all around, people have been digging out all day and it's adding to life's list of chores.

"Everybody's gotta keep going, gotta go to work, gotta do this, gotta do that, it makes life a little bit tougher." said Duluth resident, Dean Korach.

Shovels flying through the air tossing snow everywhere, many people are trading one day's work for another.

"There's other things I'd rather be doing, I will admit the snowstorm gave us a day off, but there are other things I'd rather do than shovel." said Duluth resident, Sue Rober.

Another foot of snow added to the already deep pack, the piles just keep getting higher.

And with so much snow this winter, large piles are all over the place. People just don't know what to do with all the snow.

"I remember seeing snow like this, the level of snow we've got, but I was a lot shorter back then, ha ha, I'm six-four and this is getting to be too much. Nowhere to put it!" said Korach.

Northlanders have been digging through snow since December and this latest storm has wind blowing it back into their faces and plows pushing it back into their yards. It has many frustrated and complaining, but also remembering what it means to go through a winter in the Northland.

"Lot's of Facebook friends are disgusted with it as well, but like I said it's winter in Duluth." said Rober.
