RACINE - Several inches of snow fell in Racine throughout Tuesday afternoon. A lot of people are cleaning up after Mother Nature, and cleaning up for each other.

Helping each other out is a way of life there.

In the snow globe that was Racine, we found Tim Lacy working on the heavy snow.

"I do about eight different houses and it takes about a three-hour tour," said Lacy.

Normally, it's a three-hour tour, but with Tuesday's constant pounding, it's quite a bit longer.

And did we mention: he does it for free?

"Some are older, some are relatives, and some I don't even know. I just do it."

Across town, so does Jack Moss, who was snowblowing about the same amount of driveways.

Why?

"To get the snow out of the way, that's all. Just to help out, just to help people."

And so it goes on this snowy Tuesday, neighbors helping neighbors.
