Donate today to the mission of Wisconsin Honor Flight

MILWAUKEE (WITI) – Wisconsin is losing its World War II veterans all too quickly. As they pass, they take their histories, their stories, their memories with them. You can help thank them for their service and bravery by supporting Wisconsin Honor Flight.

The mission of Wisconsin Honor Flight is to make sure that every eligible vet who served this country so selflessly gets the chance to see their memorial in Washington, D.C.

If you were a World War II veteran, or you know someone who has not gone on an Honor Flight to Washington, D. C., it is time – time for them to see their memorial — time for their honor flight.

Snow on Monday made it slow going for drivers in Sheboygan Co.

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.

People enduring snowy, blustery conditions along lakeshore

PORT WASHINGTON (WITI) — With bands of moderate to heavy snow flowing through southeast Wisconsin, everyone’s just enduring the weather at this point. That was the case in Sheboygan and Port Washington, where FOX6′s Rachelle Baillon visited on Monday, February 17th.

“Don’t go outside. That’s what it’s like. Awful windy, the snow is just eating away at your face in the wind,” said Christina Klosse.

“I was hungry so I had to go out and get some food,” said Will Valadez.

Valadez was only planning on spending a few minutes walking outside on Monday. Unfortunately for him, that got prolonged a bit when we asked him to stop and chat.

“It’s been really windy since the morning actually. Even before the snow started and now that the snow’s here, it actually seems  a lot worse,” said Valadez.

Families in Sheboygan apartment complex without water

SHEBOYGAN (WITI) — Thanks to the extreme winter Wisconsin has been dealing with, an apartment complex in Sheboygan has been without running water since early Thursday morning, February 13th.

The director of Sheboygan’s Housing Authority, Joe Rupnik, got a call around 7 a.m. informing him of the situation on Georgia Avenue. After calling utility crews, Rupnik personally delivered gallons of water to each apartment.

“It’s a huge inconvenience to be without water and we certainly understand that we want people to have that service,” Rupnik said.

Residents in the complex say they never realized how much water was taken for granted before they no longer had it at their convenience.

“You’re so used to it. You don’t even think about turning on a faucet,” said Curtis Ward.

Utility crews were able to locate and thaw the main line Thursday evening.
