Madison digs out from latest snowfall

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- People around Madison found themselves digging out from this winter's latest snowfall Monday afternoon.

B.J. McKnight, who shoveled his own driveway four other properties, which he was paid to do, said he doesn't mind the work.

"It's good exercise," he said. "If it's not cold outside it's nice."


McKnight is a chef by trade. He said he shovels driveways to supplement his income. Although he said the physical labor often leaves him sore the next day.

"Being an older guy, sometimes in the morning, it hits you," McKnight said.

Jeff Adamus is relatively new to Madison. He said he moved to the city roughly 18 months ago after his wife took a job at the University of Wisconsin.

"I'm from Rochester, New York, originally," Adamus said. "We get about 110 inches a year there. So this isn't too crazy for me. 

Adamus cleared his driveway with a snow thrower.

"This is required equipment in Rochester," he said about the machine. "We brought it from there when we moved."

Frank Hearn, a high school sophomore, said he often likes to help his parent out by shoveling their home's driveway and sidewalks.

"I'm a very big winter person, so I don't mind shoveling," Hearn said.

He added Monday's snow was "pretty light," and not very difficult to move.

Although Hearn and his parents live in a high traffic area, just off Williamson Street, which brings special challenges to clearing snow.

"A lot of people walk this route, on the sidewalk, to work," Hearn said. "So if I don't get that shoveled right away the snow gets packed town. Then it's tough to get."
