A motorist was killed in Walworth County, and folks in Sheboygan County are being urged not to drive at all, in the wake of a storm that has dumped more snow than expected. Valders in Manitowoc County has had 10 inches, and Manitowoc eight inches as of early this morning. And it was still coming down, with another 1-to-3 inches expected. Four-to-six inches have fallen between Madison and Milwaukee. Parts of east central and south central Wisconsin had as little as two inches. Authorities said the storm killed a car driver who slid into an oncoming milk truck. The trucker escaped injury. It happened late yesterday morning as it was snowing west of Delavan on Highway 11. The road was closed for more than three hours. This morning, a semi-truck crash closed a ramp between two Interstates at Milwaukee’s Mitchell freeway interchange, just before the city’s rush hour was to begin. And the state D-O-T said all of Sheboygan County’s highways were hazardous to blowing-and-drifting snow. The state officials were the ones to encourage folks there to stay home. The National Weather Service said the snow would get lighter today, and taper off late tonight as a low-pressure system moves further east from the Upper Midwest.
