Winter is dishing out a solid 1-2 punch, B-B-E is closed today
Winter literally came out of nowhere in the past four hours and is hitting central Minnesota with a vengeance. At 2:30am, it was calm and hardly any snow was falling...fast forward to 6:00am and it's a completely different story.
**At 06:33, I am hearing reports of white-out conditions across western Stearns County. It sounds like a person should not be traveling in rural areas for any reason. It is tough that we don't have school today - it really makes a mess of things - but I'd rather report that versus reporting on an accident or death relating to one of us at B-B-E! It makes me think back to April 2008 when we had 2 days like this, the first was on April 12 and I think the other one was a couple weeks later. Snow shut down everything on one of those 2 days five years ago.
