The Minnesota State Patrol reported dozens of vehicles had spun out and ended up in the ditch and numerous crashes around the metro and along the Interstate 94 corridor to St. Cloud, MN. 

In the video it shows poor driving conditions along interstate 94 and into the metro area where several cars were off to the side of the interstate after crashing.

At the height of the rush hour, traffic along Cedar Avenue in Richfield, next to the Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport was at a crawl with travel times take up to forty five minutes to an hour just to drive ten miles to cross the Minnesota River.

Also in the video are various clips of snow plows and snow clean up at night and airplanes taking off and landing at the airport  Additional clips of airplanes being deiced.
