MONROE - Snow as thick and heavy as mashed potatoes dumped all day Thursday on southern Wisconsin, causing hazardous roads and closures of schools and businesses. By 5:30 p.m., the sheriff's departments hadn't been called to any serious accidents in Green or Lafayette County, but deputies and road crews were scrambling to meet the demand of calls to dispatch for help. "The phones are ringing off the hook," said Lt. Paul Weichbrod.
