Macomb County digs out after historic snowstorm

Shovels and snowblowers were put to the test across the Metro Monday, including Macomb County.

Sure, a snow day sounds like a whole lot of fun, unless you have to get to work with the shovel. Then it's a whole lot of work.

It's impossible to escape and nearly as tough to move. Oleshia Bell says she tried to go alone but ended up needing some help.

 "I tried to do it by myself, my boyfriend's like 'you're crazy' I'm like 'ya, that stuff is heavy'," she said. So her boyfriend and his father helped her out.

But sidewalks weren't clear on Van Dyke where we spotted Chris and his two stepdaughters walking  home from a restaurant. They were trudging through the snow, in the street. Angela Marshall said it was pretty simple.

 "I don't want to walk in the snow at all," she said. But her dad sees the problem.

 "I didn't ever think I was going to have to walk in the street."

Just getting through the street pretty much impossible for some drivers. Harold Gould needed help just getting out of his driveway! The 80-year-old said he's never seen anything like it.

"Yeah, this is the worst. this is the worst I can remember. Really, this is it," he said. 

Then he asked about the groundhog. Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter.

"Oh jeez. You got the wrong groundhog."

Sadly the right groundhog. just the wrong answer.

As Cindy Wroblewski sums up this serious snowfall...

"Overwhelmed. overwhelmed I'm like 'really?' It's Michigan. You have to expect anything and everything."
