Many spend Friday digging out of the snow

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- While the snow is no longer falling, there is plenty to be shoveled or plowed. Since many woke up to everything coated in white, that meant a lot of digging out for home and business owners.

Don Miller Group spend the day clearing off their merchandise. "You can't sell what you can't see," Mike Nikas said about the hundreds of cars to be revealed from under the snow.

Life on campus returned to normal after University of Wisconsin-Madison officials canceled finals for Thursday. "I have my final today and I had to trudge through the snow to get to Union South," junior student Arielle Henderson said.

City and County workers stayed busy trying to keep the roads as safe as possible but rural areas were difficult to keep cleared with high winds. Dane County Executive Joe Parisi stressed that drivers should still take caution. "Please realize that there are still roads in rural Dane County that drift over almost as soon as they've been plowed," he said during a news conference Friday afternoon.

Several county roads were blocked off the morning after the storm. Deep snow and damaged trees knocked out power for thousands during the storm. Parisi said the County has not experienced any deaths or serious injuries as a result of this storm.
