ST. CLOUD -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation is reporting difficult driving conditions in the St. Cloud area. You should be prepared for slush-covered roads and slippery conditions.

State Patrol Sergeant Jesse Grabow says always be sure to put your safety ahead of your schedule. He says if you don't have to drive today, it's best to stay off the roads. If you do have to travel, Grabow says be prepared by having a full tank of gas, winter survival kit and warm clothes.
