ACROSS THE NORTHWOODS - Snow continues tonight leading to a few more inches of snow in the Northwoods. Snow totals will be 2 to 5 inches from this storm tonight. A big concern is snow changing over to freezing rain tonight. This line of ice will work its way from south to north tonight before the system moves off to the east. Icing is possible as far north as Oneida and Forest counties so everyone should be careful.
Travel will be very difficult Monday morning. As the disturbance tries to move out, freezing drizzle and fog will be left behind. This only adds to issues of snow and ice covered roads for Monday morning's commute.
RHINELANDER - Hodag Park received a sizable donation Thursday morning. New sand was dropped off to help the Rhinelander Parks Department grow the beach back to its original shape.
There were thousands of pounds of sand dropped off and spread out. There was a high need for this because of all the rain we've had this season.
"It was getting in pretty poor shape and washing out more and more, but this year especially, it just seems like we've lost a lot of sand. So now we're going to shape it up nicely and hopefully it'll last the year," said Rhinelander Parks Director, Jeremy Biolo.
All of that sand was donated and delivered by a company in Rhinelander.
"Musson Brothers, Inc. donated all the sand and they said we could help ourselves to as much as we want, which is unbelievable because this beach really needed some work," said Biolo. "Every little bit like that helps our community out and it improves the community. It's awesome that the Musson Brothers stepped up and would do that for us."
