Milwaukeeans help clear sidewalks and snowed-in cars after first major winter storm
MILWAUKEE(CBS 58) – The Milwaukee area received about four inches of snow on Tuesday, Dec. 30. While that snow may have come and gone, people spent most of the day cleaning it or making the most of it.
“It’s very, very heavy,” said Jeremy Soseman, as he shoveled snow from his neighbor’s sidewalk.
Jeremy Soseman also helped people whose cars were stuck in the snow.
“I’ve helped out four cars already today,” says Soseman. “The plows took one pass everywhere and there’s cars parked everywhere so cars are getting stuck today.”
“Yeah, I’ve definitely been stuck,” said Peter Preston, as he cleared off snow around his car. “I pulled my car back and I honestly thought I got stuck just trying to proactively clean.”
CBS 58 saw a number of tow trucks around town pulling cars out of the snow. People laid out salt and even placed caution signs as a reminder to take it easy.
Over on the city’s east side, smiling faces filled Lafayette hill as they took advantage of the fresh powder.
“I’m really excited because I thought there wasn’t going to be any snow, and I really wanted to sled and ice skate,” says Mia Cialdini.
Some people said they were surprised to see such a late first snowfall.
“It’s great that we always have something to remind us that there’s always snow in Wisconsin,” says Edgardo Roman.
It’s important to clear off sidewalk within 24 hours to avoid a $50 fine. For more on what you should know about winter regulations in Milwaukee, CLICK HERE.
