In Waukesha, snowplows lead the way for fire trucks
It's no surprise that driving has been tough during this blizzard, with powerful winds creating whiteout conditions at times and slippery roads.
But how tough was it? In the City of Waukesha, fire department trucks were having difficulty responding to calls, with some getting stuck temporarily, said Police Capt. Dennis Angle.
"At times, we had to have snowplows leading the way," he said.
Like other police departments in the area, Waukesha police responded to numerous calls of vehicles stuck in ditches and motorists in need of help, Angle said.
