On Tuesday April 17, The La Crosse Tribune reported, “The National Weather Service reported 5.4 inches of snow at the La Crosse Regional Airport, though accumulation on the ridge topped 8 inches. Snow was heavier to the northeast, with Black River Falls reporting 14 inches and Tomah an even foot. The Buffalo County town of Montana got 16 inches.”  

For those students planning on enjoying the expected spring temperatures, the snow storm of the past weekend, and yesterday’s as well, was heartbreaking, covering what was supposed to be green grass with large piles of white, fluffy snow.  

Freshman Kaytlin Krivich’s hometown of Elk River, Minn. saw much more of the effects of the snow storm than the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse campus did.  

Her mother informed her that the town was snowed in, with approximately two and a half feet. To her luck, she mentioned, “No, my spring plans were not affected.”  

“Twenty inches of snow. Yes, [my plans] were affected. I was kind of hoping to go to the beach over spring,” commented Sophomore Lauren Milker,  hailing from Stillwater, Minnesota. She mentioned the snow added gloominess to the season. 

Originally from Eau Claire, Junior Megan Sigurdson reported two to four inches came down upon her hometown. She noted that her spring plans were affected “a little bit,” as she had been planning on going on a weekend trip but was limited on her ability to do so.  

“Probably six inches or so,” Junior Justin Stanton said about what his hometown of Beloit experienced. According to him, his spring plans were definitely affected by the unusual, late snow storm.  

A La Crosse native, Freshman Benjamin Krueger noted, “[The snow storm] didn’t really affect my spring plans.”  

With the campus still recovering from the effects of the weekend snow storm, another winter wonderland has emerged, with several more inches of snow having added insult to injury.  

For those who may be traveling off campus during the next few days, beware that a “48 Hour Snow Disposal Period” has been declared by the Superintendent of Streets. This period started at 9 a.m. on Wednesday morning and will continue into Friday. 

It will affect the entire city and includes alternate-side parking throughout the entire day. The only grace period will be from 9 p.m. to midnight each day, according to the City of La Crosse Police Department.
