"A productive March storm," says Paul Huttner on Morning Edition at 6:45 am. Notes from his interview with Cathy Wurzer:

-Snow is basically over from Burnsville to the south. Another inch or two expected in the northern Twin Cities metro area
-Metro got about 2-4 inches of snow
-Alexandria has about a foot of snow
-Roads across much of state are "terrible," says Huttner
-Winds picking up across the state, causing worsening conditions
-Twin Cities got anywhere from 1/2 to 1 inch of ice. A few degrees colder would have meant lots of snow.
