Some residents in Milwaukee are fed up and sick of all this snow.

"When you have one storm and another storm and a triple-decker on top of it, that's when it really wears a person down," said Curtis Beckman.

Outside of Beckman's house, snow mounds sit about four feet high. He said although he wasn't thrilled to see the snow fall again, it was easier to clean up this time.

"It's easy shoveling. Oh the heavy wet stuff... I would have been dead a half hour ago," said Beckman.

The recent snow fall has also left private plow companies like Greenfield Landscaping, busy clearing up parking lots and driveways.

Crew leader Troy Vaillancourt said he has been putting in long hours and overtime. He said although it's good for business, he would like to see the snow melt away soon.

"It's exhausting," said Vaillancourt.

He said with more snow anticipated for Wednesday, he expects to see an increase in calls.
