Should we go for the gold?

Sure, we’re all tired of the snow. But with Fort Wayne being just two inches from breaking the record for the all-time snowiest winter, there’s something new we can all disagree on: Whether the record should be broken.

Some feel that if they ever see another snow flake it will be too soon. Others say we’ve suffered so much, we might as well get the record to show for our troubles.

Even the Allen County Council split on the issue.

“We’re two inches away from the record, and I sure hope we don’t make it,” said Darren Vogt, R-3rd.

“Well, in the spirit of Olympic competition, I hope we do,” countered Tom Harris, R-2nd.

Record or no, we’re just pulling for spring.
