Winter weather's impact varies depending on where you live

NORTH CENTRAL WISCONSIN (WAOW)--Much of North Central Wisconsin was hammered by the storm. But how much snow cities received depended on where you live.

Let's start in the southern part of our viewing area, in Rome. The wintry mix tapered off early Wednesday morning, but started up again around noon. Still, there wasn't much to show for it.

With no significant snow fall and mostly rain in Adams County, there isn't much to measure.

"Little bit of snow and sleet and rain. A little slippery roads until the plows went by, but it wasn't too bad," Toby Hoefling of Rome said.

But farther north in Marshfield, the snow was heavier.

Just outside the Marshfield Police Station, about three inches can be measured.

It was heavy and wet. Police urge drivers to be careful.

"A lot of people are staying home with the weather and with school being closed," Marshfield Police Lt. Rick Granza said.

Bud Beaudry lives in Marshfield. He says some parts of the city saw more snow than others.

"It could be different just on the other side of town. It's Mother Nature, she does what she wants," Beaudry said.

But whether it's one inch or three, "It's wet, it's heavy and it's got to be moved," Beaudry said.

But Marathon County got much more than that. Wausau received about six inches overnight.
