Thursday morning, we woke up to a blanket of new snow. And that meant many of us had to brush off our vehicles.
Some were able to laugh about it, including Monique Scott. "I just came back from L.A. I'm not having a good transition back to Minnesota," she said with a laugh.
Sheri Ware wasn't so happy about it. "This is the second time for me today already, I'm ready for summer."
We found out that you're only required by law to clear the snow from the front windshield and front windows of your car, but not the back windshield or back windows.
That surprised some of the folks we met.
Another surprising law has to do with littering. If snow on your vehicle comes off on the road, it could be considered littering.
"I've never heard of that," laughed Monique. "Guess I'll clear the roof off then too!"
Duluth Police told us they've never cited anyone for this, mostly because they don't believe any officers have actually attempted to do so. However, they are urging people to clear off their vehicles, front and back, for safety of yourself and other drivers.
