Record Snowfall Hits Central Wisconsin Over the Weekend
By Joe Bachman
WISCONSIN RAPIDS — April showers brought snow over the weekend — and with that, one of the largest snowstorms to ever hit the area in the month of April.
With many businesses closing their doors early, or not opening them at all, to weekend events and activities cancelled due to the conditions, Central Wisconsin residents had to cope with the area’s “spring” weather. Many areas saw record snowfall, and Wisconsin Rapids received anywhere from 16 to 28 inches of total accumulation.
We asked residents to send in their pictures of just what they were seeing in their area during this record-breaking weekend.
