April Snow Shows Winter Not Through With Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – An April snowstorm that dumped a foot of snow or more on parts of Minnesota brought a reminder that winter is only technically over.
Snow and ice-covered roads added extra time to the morning commute in the Twin Cities. By mid-morning the State Patrol logged more than 100 crashes and spinouts.
Some school systems took the day off, including Annandale, Forest Lake and Maple Lake.
The National Weather Service reported 12.2 inches at Brownton in McLeod County. Snowfalls of 6 to 8 inches were common across the Twin Cities area. About 9 inches landed in Duluth, while Holyoke in Carlton County reported 15 inches.
