It could be Old Man Winter's last gasp in Minnesota.
A late April snowstorm has dumped snow across much of western and northern Minnesota - with some reports of a foot or more.
The National Weather Service has received reports of an estimated 18 inches of snow in Pelican Rapids, 15 inches in Hawley and 13 1/2 inches in Wilkin.
Other snowfall reports include 12 inches in Donnelly, more than 10 inches in Hewitt and 9 1/2 inches north of Park Rapids. It also snowed in the Twin Cities but not as much.
The State Patrol reports Interstate 94 was closed from Moorhead to the Osakis area because of poor travel conditions. Two men were killed Friday in a head-on crash near Alexandria in which snow and slippery roads were a factor.
State sanding and plowing trucks were put back to work Friday night in Minnesota. This MnDOT truck was working south of Brainerd on Highway 371.
