Snow falling across southern Minnesota really slowed things down for commuters Wednesday morning.
Cities in the south and southeast of the state got the worst of the morning snow. As of 11:30 a.m., Stewartville had about 10 inches, Geneva had picked up 8 inches, Albert Lea had 7 inches and Blue Earth had 6.2 inches (see a map of snowfall totals here), the National Weather Service tweeted.
Roads in this part of the state are considered "completely covered" with snow, the Minnesota Department of Transportation's website shows, with visibility limited and conditions icy, while roads in the Twin Cities weren't as bad, but still slick.
Between midnight and 11 a.m., there were 113 crashes reported across Minnesota, which resulted in 13 injuries – none were serious, though. There were also 116 spinouts or vehicles off the road reported, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
That includes 67 crashes in the metro area (eight with injuries) and 35 spinouts or vehicles off the road.
Snow is expected to taper off Wednesday afternoon, but not before a few more inches falls in southern Minnesota – mostly along Interstate 90.
And the commute Wednesday evening may not be much easier. Winds will pick up, which could blow snow around and make it hard to see.
