    Spring chill hits New England

    (NECN: Kathryn Sotnik) - Many New Englanders woke up to snow Wednesday morning, and by nighttime, the temperatures continued to plummet.  

    Despite these less than seasonal temperatures, the duck tours are out in Boston and flowers are freshly planted, but on Newbury Street, the outdoor tables are empty and people are bundled up like its winter time.

    "I was so surprised when I went out to scrape my car this morning, when there was a huge icicle plastered to the front,” said MaryKate Pugliese, a Brookline, Mass. resident.

    Despite the chilly temps, we found Tyesha Miller enjoying some ice cream.   

    "I’m a true New Englander. This doesn't bother me- doesn't surprise me that yesterday, a couple of days ago, I had on shorts and today I had to put my winter coat back on,” Miller said.  

    And it's been a tough week---at Copley Square on Monday the wind was intense.  

    Andrew Fiori of the Newton Commonwealth Golf Course says people are finding a way to make it outside no matter what. One of those people is Sam Freeman, who goes to Bates College in Maine.  

    "My friends were sending me Snapchats with three inches of snow on the ground up there," Freeman said.   

    The only people we found who like the less than spring-like temps are marathon runners.   

    "The colder temperatures are actually better to run in,” said Austin Susmann, a marathon runner. “40 to 50 degrees would be nice."
