Sunday’s snowstorm was record-breaking in many places in Wisconsin.
Ashland got it worst, with about 2 feet of snow from Sunday until mid-day Monday. Nearby, Brule had 12 inches, while Bayfield had 8 inches.
Milwaukee, Green Bay and Madison all had record snowfalls for Dec. 22: Milwaukee had 8 inches, breaking the previous record for the date set in 1896; Green Bay's new record is 6 inches and Madison accumulated 5.9 inches.
Central and western Wisconsin got off relatively easy, with just a couple of inches of snow.
The storm made a mess out of driving conditions in Milwaukee County, with almost 120 crashes and disabled vehicles. A Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputy was slightly injured.
So far, there are no known deaths or serious injuries in Wisconsin from the storm, and only about 30 homes and businesses lost electricity or heat throughout the state at any point.
The same weather system made things much worse in other parts of the country: Nine people were killed due to snowfall, floods, and a tornado in Arkansas, and more than 440,000 people lost electricity from Michigan to New England.
