The storm in May came after a warm April so many trees had already leafed out and the storm combined with gusty winds brought down thousands of trees across the area. Over $4 million in damage was reported with most of it coming from Washington, Waukesha and Milwaukee Counties. Mail delivery was even canceled as a result of the snow.
