MnDOT crews are asking for people to be patient and give snowplows room as they try to clear the roadways of snow and ice. Chase Fester is a district seven supervisor for MnDOT.


“A lot of people don’t realize when our drivers go into a snowdrift, they lose visibility as well”, said Fester. “Their visibility is similar to most folks in their car or truck.”

According to the National Weather Service, Mankato received seven inches and St. Peter received 7.9 inches of snow. Other total according to the National Weather Service include six inches in Faribault, 6.8 inches in Windom, eight inches in Albert Lea and anywhere from six to nearly ten inches at locations in the Twin Cities.
