Lambeau Field covered in nearly two feet of snow after snow storm hits Green Bay

Lambeau Field covered in nearly two feet of snow after snow storm hits Green Bay
A literal perfect storm hit Wisconsin and Minnesota this weekend, coming at a time when some farmers were itching to get into the fields. That itch will have to be scratched at a later date, as Blizzard Evelyn dumped as much as two feet of snow throughout the upper Midwest.

The heavy snow and strong winds made roads nearly impossible to navigate. Drifting was significant as well. Normally snow drifts are relatively easy to manage, but with the wet, heavy nature of this snow made any drift dangerous if it sat on any building structure. Several dairies in Wisconsin will be repairing barn roofs as a result. Here's what we've gleaned from social media:

five-foot drift
A five-foot drift built up on the roof of the milking parlor at Kinnard Farms, near Casco in northeast Wisconsin. With more snow in the forecast, a team of 12 men worked two hours in 30 mph winds to clear the roof.

Keith Brunner of Cedar Red Dairy near Denmark, Wis. was milking cows when he heard cracking noises, followed by the roof collapsing. All workers made it out safely, but as of the news report some cows still remained trapped. WFRV in Green Bay, Wis. reported on the collapse.

snow roof

The roof of a barn collapsed at Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy, near Kewaunee, Wis. east of Green Bay. According to the dairy's Facebook post, no people or animals were injured in the collapse and they are thankful for the help of friends, neighbors and county officials who helped.

Reports show better weather for the middle of the week, with more freezing rain and snow forecast for the weekend.
