A poorly timed layer of snow draped the frigid Twin Cities before dawn Tuesday, leaving morning commuters with a second consecutive day of slippery surfaces to negotiate.

I'm pretty sure Chris Coleman is saving the St. Paul plows for some special occasion.

You can save yourself lots of headaches by choosing to live close to where you work or taking the bus.

Why is 494 down by Eden Prairie an absolute skating rink when the temp was 7 degrees as I literally idled through there this morning? If MNDOT cannot keep the roads even remotely drivable at 7 degrees, are we supposed to shut down all roads for half the winter? This is a NEW development, 15 to 20 years ago we were able to melt ice at 7 degrees, what has changed?

commonsens4u - not much has changed as much as our ability/willingness to complain. We would just accept the fact that it snows and gets cold in Minnesota and adjust for it.

"Worst.Place.Ever." From Dec. to April I'd agree. Longest cold snap since the 90's and it might last until Christmas? How I deal with it: there is a nice airport here that has lots of flights heading south daily. I'm on one the day after Xmas. Can't really afford it, but what's positive mental health worth? 6 days away will get me through to spring (if spring comes earlier than it did this year!)

You know it's cold when you go outside and it's cold.

As I tell everyone, I feel like my car is ice skating and I am the terrified passenger.
