Snow began falling across the Twin Cities just before 4 a.m., quickly turning wet and heavy and arriving in time to foul up the morning commute.

Started southbound on 169 from Champlin at about 5:40. Got to Fleet Farm at about 6:15. By 6:30 I was at Brooklyn Blvd, took the exit, turned around, and came back home. Good luck out there.

I would like to congratulate the weather forecasters who yet again predicted a "coating to an inch" of new snow. Nice job.

Early last evening "less than an inch" of snow. Minutes later, my phone alerts are going off "Winter Storm Watch" with up to six inches possible. I wish that I could be that inaccurate in my job.....but then again I would be out of a job.............

Had I not watched the 9:00 TV news last night, I wouldn't have known about the heavier snow forecast either. Good job, National Weather Service. Not to be smug or anything (I remember having to get the kids to daycare or school before driving to work in bad weather), but there's a lot to be said for leaving real early...you're moving slowly but at least moving, less chance of gridlock. "Quality of Life"! (yeah, right)

NE Minneapolis to Plymouth was about a 45 min commute via Hwy 55. People were driving smart and slow. I left an hour early just in case and made it without incident.

I love how people act like weather forecasters should KNOW everything and inform us all. Sometimes the data just isn't there to make a perfect prediction. We are also seeing more unusual atmospheric conditions this year than normal. In fact each year for the last several have been more and more unusual. It makes things hard to predict.
