A Spring storm dumped nearly a foot of snow over parts of northern Minnesota Tuesday. Brainerd, Duluth and the North Shore were hardest hit, forcing school closings, prompting Winter storm warnings and creating dangerous driving conditions. In Duluth, a city bus slid off an icy roadway. The city of Fargo encouraged people to stay home because driving was treacherous. The Brainerd area got 11 inches and had people wondering if spring was still coming. "This is the time of year we should be getting our boats ready and motorcycles out," said Mark Innes of the Comfort Suites in Brainerd. "It's not the time we should be scrapping snow and shoveling snow and cleaning off windshields. It should be spring." Slick roads continued to be a problem across the state on Wednesday morning.
