Snow blankets Waukesha on Halloween

WAUKESHA — It may be Halloween, but it certainly did not look like it in downtown Waukesha.

Areas inland were expected to get 6 inches or more of snowfall.

"Beyond crazy. I’m having fun though. I like doing this," said Debra Grulke, as she shoveled the sidewalk on Main Street.

"It came a little sooner than expected, but otherwise you got to enjoy it," said Paul Sobczak, who was out walking.

The shovels, plows, and brushes all made an early appearance this year to clear several inches of snow.

"It looks like a winter wonderland right now. I mean if this was Christmas Eve it would be beautiful, and no one would be complaining that’s a couple of months away," said Sobczak.

In the neighborhoods, kids jumped right into the snow, making snowballs and snow angels.

"I think it’s fun for October," said Yeem Navti, who was shoveling his driveway while his kids played outside.

Even after about 20 years living in Wisconsin, Navti said he was not ready for this much snow on Halloween. As he waited to take his kids trick or treating the father of two had one thought.

"I don’t know if this is a sign that this year is going to be a lot more intense in terms of snowfall but we’ll see. It’s Wisconsin," said Navti.
