FLURRY FURRY BLOWS IN NEW RECORD

FLURRY FURRY BLOWS IN NEW RECORD

Eau Claire is experiencing its snowiest February on record.  The latest weather system has dumped nearly ten inches of snow in Eau Claire, with total accumulations for the month so far at over 28-point-four inches.  The previous record of 28-point-two inches was set in 1936. 

Eau Claire police officers are working extra hours because of the nasty weather.  Officers are working shifts of over 12 hours so they can keep up with their regular case load while responding to weather-related incidents.  By late afternoon yesterday, there had been more than 20 vehicle assists and seven crashes, not including stuck vehicles that got pushed out by officers.  Conditions are expected to remain difficult, but the department says it’s prepared for the increase in calls.
