MILWAUKEE — For some the early season snow and cold can be annoying, but for others its good for business.

Tony Reyes of Reyes Landscaping was busy Monday night plowing and salting private parking lots around the Milwaukee area.

"It is a good thing. We're a little behind in other things, the transition was hard, but we've got to take the good with the bad" said Reyes.

The frigid temperatures have prompted warming shelters across the area to open early. At the Capuchin Community Services Center at St. Ben's in downtown Milwaukee they say this is the earliest they can remember opening for the cold, and they'll likely be open as a shelter for the next few days.

"Based on the forecast we expect to be open through Wednesday night" said Brother Robert Wotypka.

Warming Center information can be found in Milwaukee by dialing 211 from a landline phone.
