KENOSHA - The Sheriff of Kenosha County says that his area was feeling the brunt of the worst in the second round of blizzard conditions in Southeastern Wisconsin.

"We are getting pummeled," said Sheriff David Beth on Newsradio 620 WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Afternoon News."

"In the darkness right now, I'm having a little trouble.  It is blowing horizontal," he explained while he was on the roads.

"It was snowing very, very hard.  Visibility is probably about one to two football fields long.  If you're facing into the wind, it's very difficult to see."

Beth said that the number of salt trucks and snow plows were going to diminish as the snow totals would rise.

"The roads are pretty tough to get through.  Some of our highway department people have gone home.  They've been out for many, many hours.  We've got a little bit of a skeleton crew, so it's going to be tougher traveling now as the evening progresses."
