It appears that Minnesotans were a little rusty when it came to winter driving today, as the State Patrol responded to nearly 400 crashes.

As of 4:30 this afternoon troopers responded to 385 crashes, plus another 565 spinouts and 24 jack-knifed semis since 9:45 Wednesday night.

Keep in mind, that's just the State Patrol -- and doesn't include local police and sheriffs' departments.

With more wintry weather coming over one of the busiest travel weekends of the year, we're sure to add to those totals in a meaningful way.

Take it easy out there!
