There was so much snow, wind, and drifting in southern Minnesota yesterday -- two freight trains got stuck.

The first train became stuck in massive snow drifts in Freeborn County, just south of Ellendale, Minnesota.

Union Pacific railroad then sent a second locomotive to assist the stuck train -- before becoming stuck itself.


The Minnesota National Guard rescued nine railroad employees from the two stranded trains.
