On Monday morning the Twin Cities metro area saw its first sticky snow fall of the season. As in Minnesota winter tradition, more than 300 car crashes were reported on Minnesota highways. For greater Minnesota, this isn’t new. Duluth already had six inches of snow and west-central Minnesota woke up with a dusting Sunday.

Bus and light rail routes were delayed in the Twin Cities and there’s no doubt a few of us took a spill on the icy sidewalks. We asked you to share your snowy photos from the metro and you did not disappoint.
