A week of cold weather with a March gale has broken all records for Wisconsin. Roads were blocked for car traffic all day Monday and numerous autos were stranded here and at Fairchild on account of drifted roads. The county snow plows were kept busy day and night to break the drifts. A number of car owners suffered severe frost bites when their cars stalled in the drifts.
