EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- With another round of snowfall packing a punch across western Wisconsin, we saw yet another uptick in crashes, more school cancellations and those driveways? People were just trying to keep up.
Once again the Chippewa Valley was no exception to yet another Wisconsin winter storm, the fourth major snow event in just the last two weeks.
“We hadn't gotten a lot of snow up until this point so we were due I guess,” says one Eau Claire resident.
With nearly 10 inches falling Monday night and into Tuesday, neighbors were once again digging out.
"I sit and ride!” says Dan Bungartz of Eau Claire. “Haha I ain't shoveling that's for sure.”
On Tuesday, Bungartz was forced to break out the big guns, “LX 178 John Deer Tractor with a blower on it."
As the snowfall showed no letting up throughout the day, cars were buried and repair shops were buried in car repairs.
“The stuff that we're seeing right now is absolutely weather related, everything from rear end collisions, front end collisions - the weather doesn't discriminate in that aspect,” says Amy Wolfe with Trubilt Collison Center.
As of 9 p.m. Tuesday, law enforcement responded to 126 vehicle assists and crashes combined.
The department has officers working more than 12-hour shifts to ensure their typical case load is covered while also responding to those weather-related incidents.
Tuesday night driveways are shoveled and roads clearing off to cap off the end of another snow day in the badger state
"We're Wisconsinites we're born here what do you do!" says Bungartz.
