Coping With Spring Storm: Shovels, Snow Blowers
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- An early spring snow storm caused a semi to jackknife on Interstate 94 in St. Paul early Wednesday, temporarily closing the freeway and scrambling its load of eggs.
An extra amount of patience was needed for the morning commute in the Twin Cities area as snow-covered roads slowed travel and caused spinouts. Dozens of school districts around Minnesota canceled classes as the storm delivered as much as 10 inches of snow in Little Falls. Fergus Falls, Hutchison, St. Cloud and Monticello schools are among those closed.
Forecasters were expecting 4 to 8 inches of snow across the Twin Cities metro area by Wednesday afternoon.
