Milwaukeean’s clean up snowfall aftermath as multiple city snow emergencies are set to expire

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) — After a snowfall blanketed Milwaukee on Saturday, Sunday residents were left to clean up the mess.

Driving around Milwaukee’s east side neighborhoods, CBS 58’s Ellie Nakamoto-White stopped and spoke with neighbors about how they were handling the aftermath.

Some were using snowblowers to clear the areas around their homes and driveways.

Others, like 88-year-old Alice Kehoe, were returning to the old-fashioned way of shoveling paths by their sidewalks.

“I’m actually enjoying it, well compared to these nasty, drizzly days,” Kehoe said. “Some years I’m sick and tired of shoveling every day but this is great, we finally have it.”

Roads were still slick in some parts, despite plows coming through multiple times.

Some cities like Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha and Greenfield also issued snow emergencies through the weekend.

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works released a statement requesting that drivers remember to park on alternate sides while the snow emergencies were in effect.

there is no parking allowed on arterials (main street) from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m and alternate side parking will be required on side streets from 10 pm to 6 am Posted street signs take precedence. Please read the street signs for winter parking instructions BEFORE YOU PARK.

Both Kenosha’s and Greenfield’s snow emergencies expired on Sunday, while Milwaukee’s and Racine’s continue through early Monday.
