Icy ruts cause spin outs days after big snowfall
ST. PAUL, Minn. — The drive into work this morning was tough not just in the Twin Cities, but also in big parts of southern Minnesota.
Roads are still slippery because of icy ruts that rumble underneath your car and can cause spin-outs if you hit them while going too fast. They are the result of this weekend's snow storm.
