MILWAUKEE — Digging out after Tuesday morning's dump, that's how a lot of people are spending their day.
It's made for a chaotic commute, and as car tires spin in the snow, so do heads as neighbors question when the snow will end.
"(It) took me an hour to get myself out of the driveway and then 15 minutes to make it six blocks," Jeff said.
And he isn't alone. The snow has also made it difficult for Madi Bockheim and thousands of others to maneuver through the mess.
"It's a mess. When I walked out my door this morning and I saw how much snow we had, I kind of knew we weren't going to make it," Bockheim said.
So, instead, Bockheim and her ride chose to work from home, but not everyone has that option.
Temperance Townsend is trudging through the snow-covered streets on foot. She said the snow adds about 20 minutes to her typical 15-minute walk to work.

"It's pretty tough. I'm in the middle of the street walking. Nobody out here's shoveled yet," Townsend said.
But the one good thing about the inclement weather is it has a way of bringing people together. For every person stuck in the snow, more often than not, there's another person willing to lend a hand and help them get on their way.
