ELM GROVE - Home owners and businesses in Waukesha County spent much of Tuesday trying to stay ahead of the blizzard striking Southeastern Wisconsin.
As drivers were heading home Tuesday evening, most of the roads remained in good condition, including the stretch along North Avenue in Elm Grove.
Most people took Tuesday to clean up from the storm's first part, and braced for the storm's second round.
In Downtown Elm Grove, Jennifer Blaha tried to get the snow and ice off of her sidewalk before more snow fell.
"It's really cold out, it's freezing, but the wind is good and bad because it helps with shoveling because then it just blows it away, but it's rough. It's rough," said Jennifer Blaha, who works in Elm Grove.
A car slid off Pilgrim Road in Brookfield.
The driver waited about 40 minutes for a tow, and as Jose Galban cleared his driveway, he said he was supposed to Fort Myers, Florida on Tuesday - until the airline canceled the flight.
Now, he'll wait day-by-day until they make it on a different flight.
"Sooner or later, we'll be down there, and we'll be laughing about this."
