Wednesday's snowfall was a welcomed burst of business at Sunburst Winter Sports Park. The hills and chair lifts were full of skiers and snowboarders.

"It feels awesome," says Robbie Barr, a member of Homestead High School's Ski Team.

"Finally, we can have a practice in the snow," says Thomas Haderlein, another member of the ski team. "It's the most fun we've had all season. We had a huge snowball fight. We look forward to this all year."

Others look forward to it for a different reason.

"The more that falls, the better," says Craig Garbisch. "There are a lot of people who rely on the snow to make money and keep busy."

Garbisch is passionate about his plow.  We caught up with him while he was out clearing parking lots.

"I know people think it's crazy, but I love snow plowing," he says. "It's peaceful. I turn the radio on and sing to myself."

He's a snow-loving soprano, who has a warning for everyone at home: "The roads are slippery, and the snow is wet and heavy, so take your time and be careful while driving and shoveling."
