The wicked weather made a mess of many morning commutes on Tuesday.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, there were almost two dozen vehicles off the road and several injury crashes.
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."
That's because Mother Nature gave us a dose of freezing rain first.
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.
MnDOT told us that they split their plow drivers' shifts, to prepare for the storm. And despite the fact they make good overtime money, they too, are tired of the snow.
Inman agreed. "My truck needs some work now, because of the winter." He's ready for a break too.
