Under the snow, be sure to watch out for a thin sheet of ice.

Luv pic of 4 lane hwy. and nice wide grassy median. Sure would be nice to have extra lanes for cars. See bus on shoulder? Maybe add 3rd lane for ALL to use

"A handful of inches . . ."? Do they teach writing in school any more?

Trooper was too busy to ticket the drivers that drove around the barricades? How long does it take to issue a ticket?

394 west of 494 wasn't plowed. Where were the plows? How can you just not plow a 6 lane freeway. When would that ever make sense? Are we going to turn into the East coast where they just don't know how to plow a couple of inches?

"Are we going to turn into the East coast where they just don't know how to plow a couple of inches?" -- The real question is "Are we going to turn into the South where they just don't know how to drive in a couple of inches?" Honestly MN, you should know how to handle this by now.

How can they not plow both lanes of Hwy 5 when it snows? The last two snow storms they plow Hwy 5 east going towards Hwy/ 212, but, not the west bound lane?? Ridiculous!!!

I think we did get around 5 inches in the North Metro, but it seemed like the forecast was for 1-3 inches, done by 7am today.

It's been quite a snow year! The weather forecasters have been nearly spot on for every snow event. And thanks to all the snow removal crews out there - you've done a great job in a challenging year! Lovin' winter...

This month is worse than 2 years ago. We had 86" total snow in 2010-11, but we had THAWS in Feb. and March that took the snow cover down before the next dump. Does anyone realize, the WARMEST temp we've had in 2013 is a measly 40 degrees? When is it ever gonna hit 50 or 60? I know last year was an anomaly, but come on! It's weird to have daylight saving time, 12 hours of daylight and this cold and snowy outside. The Twins will sorely regret scheduling home games the first week of April this year.
