One worker takes to skis to get to work


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Some left the digging out from the winter storm until later, which meant they had to come up with a creative way to get to work.

Candie Gross used her cross country skis.  Candie said she received some funny looks on her way in but that beats the other option she faced.

"My van was buried and I knew it would take a long time," Gross said. "I figured, I might as well just ski because I wasn't going to get it unburied."

She said the journey to work at Mayo Clinic Health system took her about a half an hour.  She said the streets and sidewalks in Eau Claire were slippery but manageable.
