Duh!...it's Minnesota...in winter! Be smart, stay home, do NOT travel, wait for roads to be plowed...this is not rocket science..use common sense. Have fun and make a snowman.

I just pray for a snow day. Play it safe and don't tailgate just stay home!

Snowblew the driveway of all that wet & heavy snow. Probably do it again today before we get those cold temps. White Christmas this year.

I can't figure out why anyone wouldn't put their lights on in a snowstorm, but for some reason many were driving around without them. (It's also the law.)

Note to the media- time to head over to the impound lots! Or just use last years, it's the same thing over and over.

Wow, an expansive article about our first snow storm and zero mention of the amount of snow that has fallen so far in the twin cities. Excellent reporting.

"Still, Northstar and light-rail services were generally running on time Sunday, Metro Transit reported. Buses were a little more affected. As of 1:30 p.m. Sunday, 161 city buses were driving 34 routes. Fifty-three percent of them were reported to be behind schedule" yet another reason why investment in rail transit is good for Minnesota. I can always get to work on the light rail through 2 feet of snow. Can you say the same about your car?

antisuburbs - guess what? everyone subsidizes your travel costs. At least I don't need YOU to pay my way.
