MILWAUKEE - There are slick spots as far as the eye can see in Southeast Wisconsin, thanks to rain on Monday and a dramatic drop in temperature. And with the next couple of days expected to stay frigid, the ice isn't going anywhere without a little work.
"It's thin enough you're not going to get a shovel underneath it to pick it up," said Dustin Underwood. "You kind of just have to get out there and salt it and make it melt and go away."
After a walk around his block on the east side, Underwood wasn't taking any chances.
"You appreciate the people who either salted or didn't shovel," he said.
Mike DeMarco tried toughing it out with his son's dog, Jack.
"Four-wheel drive and it's still tough. He's sliding around a bit," he said.
And shivering in the sub-zero wind chills.
"It's kind of bitter and cold but the sidewalks are the worst thing," DeMarco said.
