Darlene Shelly enjoys winter, but it's been a long season and she's had enough.
"I like winter until you get so much ice that you can't do things. We still have ice, making it hard to walk. At times, the deep snow has made it difficult as well," said Shelly, who lives in Elk Grove, a small hamlet at the Sullivan-Columbia county line.
The National Weather Service reported that Sullivan County received just over 80 inches of snow this season, more than twice the amount that was dumped in the Williamsport area.
A native of the Lehigh Valley, Shelly said it wasn't so much the snow, but the ice that caused the biggest challenge for her this year.
"I like just getting out, walking around and taking pictures," Shelly said. However many times this winter she felt trapped inside her cabin, unable to get out because of icy conditions.
"At my home, I have paths where I can go out to feed stray cats and whatever else comes out of the mountain. But my paths were just ice (much of the time)," said Shelly, who enjoys photography.
"They (maintenance crews) have had a hard time clearing the main roads. We would have rain, then it would freeze over and we also had some sleet," Shelly said.
Spring, which starts Sunday, isn't coming soon enough for Shelly. She's ready to capture some beautiful scenes with her camera.
"I like to take pictures of flowers coming up as well as animals that I can find along the way," said Shelly, who lives with three cats. "They're my buddies."
