The storm of the winter is still pounding Door and Kewaunee County, giving hard-working snowplow drivers plenty of windshield time this weekend. The National Weather Service estimates over two feet of snow fell in parts of the area with wind gusts reaching as high as 50 miles per hour. Sturgeon Bay interim municipal services director Chad Shefchik says city crews hit the roadways at 3 a.m. Saturday morning and have been trying to be proactive ever since.
Shefchik recommends motorists stay off the roads as much as possible. There is a blizzard warning that lasts until Monday morning while there is a lakeshore flood warning until 1 p.m. on Sunday.
