The season's biggest snowfall drew mixed reactions from families across Brookfield.

Melissa Pelaez was grateful her neighbor helped clear heavy snow from her driveway with a snowblower. She and her young daughters cleaned up the rest.

"They forecasted this so I guess I knew at some point I’d have to get out here and do some cleaning up. It’s nice knowing that I can clean up throughout the day and not have to rush up to work or get kids where we have to be," said Pelaez who also works as a teacher.

Her girls were thrilled to help shovel and enjoy the snow.

Down the street Jay Shefky said he was adjusting to his new place after living in an apartment.

"I saw everybody else had kinda shoveled or snow blower so I came out here and started up and got right to work," said Shefky.

He was thankful his snowblower worked for the first time this season, but ready for a break.

"I didn’t mind it at first it’s been a while since we’ve had a major snow storm and now that now that it’s the third one I’m kind of over it," said Shefky.

Like many others, Shefky and Pelaez were happy to be at home working to get as much snow off the ground before the extremely cold temperatures arrive.
