Record-breaking snow makes a big impact on Northeast Wisconsin over the weekend.


Precipitation started as rain Friday evening, and turning to over 20 inches of snow by Sunday afternoon.

"It's intense, I've lived here for about 15 years and this is probably the most intense snowfall we've had we've probably shoveled about 5 times,” said Katie Dellamater as she dug out of her home in Ashwaubenon.


"I told my girlfriend I've never imagined something I saw on the news will happen to me, I saw the pictures like you can't open the door and it's like half your height and we can see it in our door now,” Helena He said as she dug out in De Pere.


Cars were stuck, roads were bad and roofs caved in. Even fast food restaurants couldn't escape the storm, after the Taco Bell sign in Howard hit the ground.


"I've never seen anything like it here, since we've been here, we've been here since 1989 here in Ashwaubenon,” said Bob Fresen as he dug out.

"This is ridiculous, that's why I left Wisconsin for, but that's the way it is, nature does it's thing,” Bob Stocki said.


Despite the fun, some say they're not anxious to break this record again.


"I'm just killing time until the golf season starts, but this is not helping,” Fresen said.
