On Tuesday, we were told that Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha had a weather advisory for snow. As the day went on, the forecast was changed to a snowstorm warning. The the area was changed to include up to Sheboygan. This storm changed its path very quickly and caught us unaware of its fury. The skiers, snowball makers, and sled riders will have a field day. Over 100 vehicles either went into the ditch or were involved in auto accidents. Many vehicles got stuck or were buried where they were parked. The snow had an ice base underneath. Once we dig out from this snowfall things can go back to normal. Nobody can predict with exact knowlege as to what the weather will do. All we have is educated guesses based on study of recent weather patterns. Surprise, surprise! We got hit by the big one this time. Have fun trying to shovel or snow blow your sidewalks and driveways. Don't have a heart attack while doing this.
Please support the Bay View community.
