A pedestrian braves blowing snow Monday afternoon along 145th Street.

Heavy snowfall made roads treacherous


While we got a sneak peak at spring earlier this month, old man winter showed he's still the man in charge. More than 14 inches of snow fell on Rosemount Sunday and Monday.

Police chief Gary Kalstabakken said between noon Sunday and 3 p.m Monday police responded to eight weather related accidents. Officers also responded to 15 motorist assists for people who ended up in the ditch.

"Lots of people were out, whether they needed to be or not," said Kalstabakken.
