Residents of several Midwestern states continued Monday to dig out of one of the heaviest pre-Thanksgiving snowstorms in history.
In Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn., the snow fell at the rate of one inch per hour. The storm also dumped up to 14 inches of snow on the ground in Iowa. Regions of Wisconsin and even parts of the Texas panhandle also got hit by the massive storm system.
The storm that began late Friday has also been blamed for more than 400 automobile accidents in Minnesota.
"It seems like it usually takes a week or so for people to remember how to drive in the snow," one motorist said.
A traffic collision in northern Wisconsin also killed two people.
"It doesn't matter if you're driving a four-wheel drive or a two-wheel drive, when you hit the brakes, it's going to react the same way," another driver said.
The storm also left more than 100 customers without power.
