Up until this week, many of you have not dealt with snow and ice on the roads. Saturday night’s snow storm has left much of Minnesota covered in white — which is affecting flights, travel conditions and visibility. Nearly 100 flights at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport have been canceled. Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Golden Valley, Hopkins, Mendota Heights, Minneapolis, Plymouth, St. Louis Park, St. Paul, Richfield, Robbinsdale, Rutledge and West St. Paul have also declared snow emergencies for Sunday, until streets are plowed full width. Several snow emergencies don’t begin until 9 p.m. while others are in effect now. Check with your local community for more information.
