As snow fell and wind blew across southern Minnesota, people still managed to get out and try to, ah, embrace the weather. 

There's going to be plenty to enjoy — an additional 6 to 10 inches of snow by Sunday afternoon in parts of southwestern Minnesota through the Twin Cities metro area and west-central Wisconsin. 

If you have to get out, be careful. The Twin Cities metro area is now in a blizzard warning until 7 a.m. Sunday, with heavy snow and wind gusts of over 35 mph, and whiteout conditions at times. Every public safety department out there is urging people to just stay home.
