I have to take issue with the National Weather Service's Winter Storm Warning which tells us only to travel if it is an emergency. Really?

This is getting to be frankly ridiculous. The next person that discusses quality of life here is going to get a good wrap on their knuckles.

Without government employees on the road this morning, the commute was much, much better than it usually is, even with the snow!

35W was basically deserted this morning when I left for work. Between people who already had it off and people who decided to stay home, this was one of my easier and faster commutes despite the snow on the road.

Sensationalism. This is not that big of deal. A few inches? Winter not taking a break? Didn't we have like 16 days off of snow in early Feb? This winter has been quite docile actually. Not newsworthy.

Yeah, what is up with the lack of traffic this morning? Are there now that few people working in the private sector?

It appeared that the roads had not been salted as aggressively as usual this morning. The typical melting/road spray you normally get was not there. My shoes did not turn white. Yet the roads were very passable. This is a good thing in so many ways.

I can't believe this winter is so "Persistent" that it snowed in February.

It amuses me that studded tires aren't allowed in Minnesota.Having just move back here,after 16 years of driving in Alaska,I've seen first hand,that studded tires save lives,and on average we received 330" of snow.Is the price of saving lives,worth less, then the extra maintenance costs,for upkeep of the minimal damage studds cause? Apparently you can place a price on life.

Love the lead photo of the guy in the woods. I assume Elizabeth is the photographer. What's a Dml?
