Winter storm dumps more than 15" of snow in New London

NEW LONDON, Wis. (WBAY) -- People in the City of New London enjoyed sunshine on Wednesday after getting some of the most snow in northeast Wisconsin.

Scraping off cars is common during the winter months, but the most recent winter storm left cars sitting outside in New London buried under more than one foot of snow.

"It's a little heavier, but it's Wisconsin," said Pasquale Piekarczyk, delivery driver for Automotive Supply Co. "It's going to happen, and you just gotta be prepared for it, you know?"

The snow piles across the city continue grow taller, some exceeding six-feet tall.

"Once it's off the car, you've got to shovel it away," said Piekarczyk.

Mike Buchman started his day at 3 a.m. clearing the walking trails of city parks.

"The people in town like to do a lot of walking, so we like to keep those relatively clear after we get the roads taken care of," said Buchman, the park caretaker. "It's kind of a secondary thing."

Despite the depth, Buchman says the snow is dry and easy to push into piles.

"Today's a nice day and the sun is out," he said. "So, it's going pretty good."

However, after a long few weeks of relentless winter weather, the people of New London would be happy to see it end.

"I don't like snow, because you have to get up so early," said Buchman.

"If it does come, it does come," said Piekarcyzk. "But, I am looking forward to spring."
