How Are the Roads? Crowded and Icy, or Nice and Easy?
Conditions for driving and walking were tough in many places around Fridley after more than a foot of snow in chilly temps. Share your experiences, opinions or photos.
It hasn't exactly been smooth sailing on roads and streets in and around Fridley since Sunday's storm dumped more than a foot of snow on the Twin Cities.
Or considering the icy spots, maybe it's been too smooth sailing.
On social media, commenters sized up the situation, deploring and defending the plowing jobs on local roads. See the Storify above (or at Storify.com) for a sampling from Twitter. Use the scroll bar to the right of the comments to see all of them.
Timely advice: "Double your expected commute and travel times," Lt. Eric Roeske of the Minnesota State Patrol told Patch, "and expect icy patches and slippery spots." (The State Patrol investigated a snowplow-SUV crash on University Avenue NE in Fridley Monday.)
