Several mostly minor traffic crashes, vehicles getting stuck in the snow and widespread power outages were reported in Fond du lac County during the weekend snow and ice storm.  Fond du lac County Sheriff’s captain Ryan Waldschmidt says ice accumulation snapped tree branches and caused power outages in the city of Fond du lac and  throughout the county.  “Saturday afternoon and evening when we had that ice move through, plus the high winds, we did have quite a few tree branches down and widespread power outages.”    Waldschmidt says most residents hunkered down at home.
