Please --- just stay home

Roads in most of the state are largely impassible due to blowing and drifting snow.  A major multi-car accident has closed Interstate 41 between Neenah and Oshkosh. Roads in the Chippewa Valley are in general in terrible condition and most businesses are closed. Some areas in the state are reporting power outages, particularly in the Stevens Point area.  Portions of North Claremont in Eau Claire are closed to traffic due to the many cars stuck on the road.

There are also reports of barn collapses in the Mondovi and Osseo areas. There are probably more that are not reported.

Unless you are in a life-threatening situation, please stay home and let the emergency crews do their job. Stuck cars all over the roads are not useful to anyone.

Also -- with the high drifting, if you have a high-efficiency furnace with air intake and output vent pipes - please take a look and make sure they are not snow-covered. This is very important for safety. 

In a lighter-hearted vein, the Dunn County Sheriff has apparently issued an arrest warrant for the groundhog for lying about spring weather:
