Fox Valley takes in deep snowfall

FOX VALLEY, Wis. (WBAY-TV) The Fox Valley is blanketed in deep snow with this weekend’s snowstorm.

In Omro, a group was shoveling a driveway for the second time since the storm started.

"Our mass was even canceled this morning, so we have nothing better to do but move snow and thank God," said Joe Benoit of Omro.

His son, Calvin Benoit, was out helping happy to be shoveling.

"Because usually I get a reward," said Calvin.

What's that reward?

"Five dollars and a soda, a combo so I think that was a good deal," said Calvin.

At UW Oshkosh there was comradery as freshman Krysten Peplinski helped push a car that was stuck.

"Felt good, doing some good deeds out here," said Peplinski.

But students Action 2 News spoke to were not thrilled with the large snowfall

"It's terrible, it's April and it's this much snow, it's so bad," said Liliana Lazo, UW Oshkosh graduate student.

Lazo says back home in Virginia it was 80 degrees and the snowstorm is not a good recipe for motivation.

"I feel like it gives no one any motivation to even leave the dorms,” Lazo said. “So it’s just bad timing really if it’s snowing. I don't really want to go to class, it's snowing. I don't want to do any homework, I just want to lay in bed.”
