Wisconsinites welcome spring through chattering teeth; More state homes 'underwater'; Survey says over half of residents favor assault weapon ban; more briefs
Today is the first day of spring. But Wisconsinites are still chattering their teeth and shivering in their coats as wind chills plunged into the minus-teens overnight.
Medford, at minus 14, had the state's coldest wind chill as of 6 a.m.
Winds have died down from yesterday, but they're still in the 10 to 20 mph range. Gusts hit 52 yesterday in Sheboygan and 47 in Kenosha. In Madison, strong winds created snow drifts up to 20 feet on the west edge of town.
