Another Day Off For Many Schools

(2/21/14) Close to 50 school districts in Wisconsin are closed today, due to the heavy snow-and-ice storm that blew in yesterday afternoon.

  Eau Claire, Superior, and Marshfield are among the districts that shut down -- along with Northland College of Ashland.  Many schools in southern Wisconsin are running two hours late this morning, along with a handful of districts in the northeast.  Poplar in Douglas County had 16-and-a-half inches of snow as of six a-m.  Hawthorne, also in Douglas County, picked up 15-inches.  State emergency management officials said five-and-a-half inches fell in just two hours at Seeley in Sawyer County.  Much of southern Wisconsin had sustained winds of 25-to-35 miles an hour.  The state D-O-T says roads are generally snow-covered except in southeast Wisconsin, where main highways are in good winter driving condition.  Major utilities reported around 55-hundred customers without power as of six o'clock.  Activities continue at the American Birkebeiner cross country ski races at Hayward and Cable, where over 10-thousand skiers are trying to get there for tomorrow's four major events.  The storm is expected to clear out this afternoon, with drier and colder weather projected for the weekend.
