It's tough to complain about the snow that fell across the region on Sunday because our winter has been unusually mild, with very little snow. However, this recent snowstorm brought several inches across the upper Midwest, with some areas receiving nearly a foot of fresh snow.

Unfortunately, the snowy conditions led to hazardous roads, resulting in numerous crashes, including one fatality. Several schools opted to delay classes this morning.

Aside from the tragic incident in Burnsville, there was another crash resulting in serious injuries.
