With nearly 8 inches of snow falling on much of southeast Minnesota, it sent many residents outside early in the morning to move the heavy, wet, snow.

I, for one, was out for about two and a half hours shoveling and helping move snow. From the six driveways my family helps with, it usually takes us somewhere between 1 and 2 hours to get the job done, but with wet nature of the snow made it take much longer to get the job done.

My neighbor started at 7:15 in the morning, and we saw people out and about until nearly 4 p.m.

Many of our listeners spend time outside as well, you can read their comments below:

It was not fun to move the large amounts of snow as we had our first major snowfall of the season. There were many crashes across the state, as MnDOT reported over 190 traffic crashes.
