Enough snow to make it slow

January 23, 2012

   I heard that it took some people twice as long as normal to get to work this morning.  Many parts of the metro saw freezing drizzle Sunday evening, then a changeover to snow.  Snow continued through rush hour(s) today in the Twin Cities.  The official snow total at MSP airport was 1.9 inches.  Here are some additional snow totals, as posted on the Twin Cities National Weather Service web site:
