SHEBOYGAN COUNTY (WITI) -- As the snow fell throughout the day on Monday, February 17th and into the evening hours -- at one point in the evening, all county deputies were assisting distressed drivers.
Blowing snow, low visibility and low travel speeds were factors in the trip from Milwaukee to Sheboygan County Monday.
Mile after mile, there were trucks pulled over, cars in the ditch and even vehicles stuck in fields.
"It's powdery, but it's packy snow so it's very slippery," Mike Knudtson said.
Knudtson has four-wheel drive on his truck, but even he was erring on the side of caution on Monday.
"You've also got to take it slow because four-wheel drive does not mean four-wheel stop," Knudtson said.
"A lot of people driving like idiots. They need to slow down. It's better to get there in one piece, maybe late than to not get there at all," Jill Iddel said.
Sheboygan County Sheriff's officials say starting at noon and 8:00 p.m. Monday, 28 cars and trucks were stuck in the ditch - weather and speed the main causes.
On Monday evening, plow drivers cleared roads and parking lots, drivers brushed off their cars, and some drivers aid it's imperative to remain defensive behind the wheel as winter continues.
"Leave a few minutes extra early and you'll make it," Knudtson said.
