Ozaukee County snowplows, residents keep up with accumulating snow

OZAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Monday's snowfall may be the first real winter mess that Ozaukee County residents have had to deal with.

In areas towards Sheboygan, slick roads are causing drivers to keep it slow as plows on I-43 try to keep up.

A steady number of salt trucks passed through Port Washington just off the interstate. Nearby homeowners are also working hard - saying they haven't had to do much shoveling so far this winter.

"You should have seen me out here in sandals," Paul, who works as a snow plow operater, said. He's easy to spot in the city because he wears a vest but no long sleeve shirt to cover his arms.

He was out on the roads already on Monday at 2 a.m.

"We'll be going out again tonight. We really haven't had any sleep since then but I've shoveled this three times myself - my lot," Paul said.

While the heaviest of the snowfall had already passed through Ozaukee County by 7 p.m. - the lake effect snow was forecasted to continue through the night and was not expected to stop until Tuesday morning.
