We spoke with some folks around Duluth.
Private plow driver Steve Inman said he was out and about around 4:30am. "It started snowing around 6, 6:30, and it was very slippery."

Some people said they just took it really snow, and were able to get around fine. "Unless you have to drive down a hill, then things are tough," said Jim Gaffey, who helped get his electrician friend driving a truck, unstuck from a snowbank.

Inman agreed. "My truck needs some work now, because of the winter." He's ready for a break too.
