It was a bitterly cold morning here in Southeastern Wisconsin Saturday. Many drivers came outside to icy windshields and windows.

"It's annoying. I hate the winter and I've been here since I was six," said Tekia Mitchell as she cleared snow off her windows.

Snow scraping was a common sight Saturday morning. Many other people spent their time out salting sidewalks.

“I thought it was supposed to start snowing last night, so I’m really happy to wake up to this,” said Maria Ostevich, an apartment manager in Milwaukee.

Osvaldo Amadeo, or “Chico,” walked on that pavement Saturday as he delivered the mail. After 26 years on the job, this will be his final Wisconsin winter.

“March 31 will be my last day and I’m flying to Florida,” Amadeo said.

In Waukesha, people shopping at Woodmans told TODAY’S TMJ4 they weren’t taking chances.

“I ran out of salt this morning, so I had to get more,” said Tim Kujawa.

Woodman’s manager told TODAY’S TMJ4 they made 70% more than a normal Friday as shoppers rushed to get what they needed before the snow.

Saturday was much slower, but still busy.

“I don’t like shopping in the snow,” said Dan Dierbeck.

Though shoppers weren't aware of what Saturday’s weather would bring, they wanted to make sure they were prepared.
