RACINE COUNTY — As the snow piled up in Racine and Kenosha County, residents asked the question, where is fall?

"I know how much everyone loves Christmas, but I would like to have fall," said Colleen Davis.

The sound of snow blowers and shovels echoed throughout each neighborhood. Jack Manders said he was shocked by the few inches that fell.

"You don't expect this in mid-November," said Manders.

In Racine, Tyler Erhardt, worked for an hour to clear off his sidewalk and his 80-year-old neighbor Carol Duncan's home.

"I kind of just grew up doing things for others," said Erhardt.

Duncan said she appreciates the help, and every time he shovels for her, it feels like a blessing.

"We did it for the woman that lives across the street; she was in her 90s. My husband and I always did hers before we did ours, and I think this is God’s way of paying us back by Tyler doing ours, " said Duncan.

Residents in Kenosha County also spent their time helping neighbors clear off snow. John Tenant used his new snowblower to help clear the sidewalks for his 90-year-old neighbor.

"As long as I’m out I might as well do them," said John Tenant.

Tenant said this is what community is all about, helping out one another in need.
