The Minnesota winter that won’t end is expected to dump up to a foot of snow in the Twin Cities by Thursday night, snarling traffic throughout the day, weighing down tree limbs and wearing out the patience of some of the state’s hardiest winter afficionados.

Let's have some clarity on just how much of this is distribution lines and how much is high voltage transmission lines.

Does the City of Minneapolis plow snow? I've lived near Lake of the Isles for five years and have seen very little evidence.

I have an acreage in SW Minnesota with a lot of 50 to 60 year old trees and I believe by tomorrow morning they will all be destroyed by ice and wind. You people in the cities better be thankful if you only get a foot of snow. We have an absolute catastrophe down here! This Winter will never end. Please bring on the "global warming"!

An ordinance in Minneapolis _prohibits_ snow emergencies after April 1? You've go to be kidding! How ridiculous. The city needs to clear the snow whether it's December 6, March 28, or April 10.

All the efforts to fight global warming must be working, eventually it will be winter all year round. Is that the goal?

Guaranteed the global warming alarmists will claim that this never-ending cold stretch was CAUSED by global warming. They're not about to give up the fight, no matter how ridiculous they sound.

Word to the climate change deniers, weather =/= climate.

Minneapolis hasn't plowed East Hennepin curb to curb in years. Usually in the winter there is just over 1 lane in each direction.
