Freelance photographer Derek Montgomery's in Duluth today shooting the blizzard for MPR News.

"Conditions are pretty bad here with visibility about half a block in town and getting worse," he writes. "Winds are pretty crazy too."

He sent us this:

Nonnie Socholotuk braves high winds and stinging snow to film the waves and conditions along Lake Superior in Canal Park with his iPhone early Wednesday morning in Duluth, Minn. "I started at Brighton Beach and am making all the stop along the lake," Socholotuk said.

Montgomery's headed back out. He'll be delivering great pictures here all day.

Duluth "whiteout!" 50+ mph winds & heavy snow now. http://t.co/GrsKyNqp
