The UMD football team and marching band is on their way back home from winning the Division II championship. I'm sending positive thoughts and prayers that they make it home safely!

Just got home from a 10 mile and 30 minute drive home myself. Went slow, never even skidded.

As I was driving I thought, "Jeez, it is not too bad to drive in snow without people tailing you, over-reacting/correcting, and talking on their cell phones."

I just got home from an ill-advised drive across the state from Sioux Falls, and I can tell you the area around Fairmont was continuous bouts with zero and near-zero visibility. From about 10-15 miles east of Fairmont to Albert Lea and north to Owatonna was easy going. After that it degraded rapidly. Roads were snow covered through the Twin Cities, and people drove way too fast and followed too closely. And then there were the plows that really weren't doing much but providing a hazard. No salting or sanding going on at all that I saw. Worthington to the South Dakota line was almost all glare ice. Why don't they treat that area? It's always bad and there's almost a line at the South Dakota border where Minnesota's ice covered roads become So. Dak.'s clear, dry roads.

Probably because your ISP provider is based in CA, sometimes it screws with the isp location.
