Old Man Winter reintroduced himself to Central Minnesota with a snowy wallop that has officially dumped 10" on St. Cloud as of 3:45 this afternoon according to the National Weather Service. With 1-4" of snowfall expected overnight, the Winter Storm Warning has been downgraded to a Winter Weather Advisory through midnight.

I kid you not, on my way home from work this afternoon I had to help three drivers out of snowbanks (in a 7 mile stretch through St. Cloud), and one more at my apartment complex. I love snow! (Really.)
