The dropping temperatures are expected to create big headaches for those dealing with the aftermath of days of snowing. 

"I'm just worried with all this snow it's going to get icy," John Hanson, of Duluth, said.

The deep freeze will make all that shoveling and scraping almost impossible. People in Duluth were trying to dig out all Wednesday.

"Trying to get most of this picked up before it gets too cold," Tom Van Hale, of Duluth, said.

The chilly temps are expected to last well into next week. It will not only make snow removal tricky, but it will make things slick.

"I'm nervous," student Olivia Staats said. "The most difficult thing will be walking to school."

While many people were working, some were still playing in the fresh powder.

"He's shoveling," Taya Higgins said.

Taya and her sister Tomi played in the snow while their dad shoveled the driveway.
