Episode Narrative Rain quickly turned to snow as an upper low pressure system moved across Wisconsin. The snow caused roads to become slippery and hundreds of vehicle accidents were reported. Heavy, wet snow stuck to power lines and tree branches causing them to snap under its weight. The downed tree limbs and power lines knocked out electricity to more than 30,000 customers, mainly in the Wausau (Marathon Co.), Stevens Point (Portage Co.), Merrill (Lincoln Co.) and Rhinelander (Oneida Co.) areas. About 11,000 customers were still without electricity on the morning of the 24th. The highest snowfall totals included 8 inches 8 miles east of Stevens Point (Portage Co.), 7.5 inches 4 miles northeast of Rhinelander, 7.4 inches at Land O Lakes (Vilas Co.) and Elcho (Langlade Co.) and 7.0 inches at Wausau and Presque Isle (Vilas Co.).
