APPLETON, Wis.- It's been a long wait for Karen Knauf of Appleton at the bus stop Tuesday morning.

"I'm getting wet, I have to wait for a bus, there's not cover," explained Knauf.

The snow is causing a dent in her plans for the day.

"I have to meet somebody at my house in 15 minutes and I'm not happy," said Knauf.
Drivers at Valley Transit in Appleton say they're asking people to prepare for delays that they say are inevitable with the weather.
"There are times we might be running 5, 10 or 15 minutes late or have to skip a trip like that happened in the last storm," said Valley Transit spokesperson, Nikki Voelzke.
Voelzke says they keep buses running as long as possible, but people should be constantly checking for delays or cancellations.
"So we use old school ways of notifying our passengers through phone lines, but we also use social media and our website," said Voelzke.
For Knauf, she says once she gets home she won't risk any more storm problems.
"I'm staying in tomorrow, I'm not going anywhere," said Knauf.
Advice everyone is highly encouraged to follow until roads can get cleared up.
