The Minnesota Department of Transportation has been prepping for this weather event, and had crews out all throughout the metro.

Because of all the rain that fell on Friday, plow drivers did not pre-treat the roads with salt. They say all the rain would have just washed it away.

Several Crystal residents were out and about on Saturday, and say they're a bit tired of the snow, especially in the middle of April. But they say, they won't let it stop them from getting things done.

"I thought it would just be a little bit of snow but it was more than I thought, little icy on top too so I thought I'd get out the snowblower," Don Coffman, who lives in Crystal, said. "It's good exercise, I can use it."

Joseph Hedberd, who lives in Crystal, took his dog out for a morning walk, despite the blustery, winter-like weather. 

"They got to go to the bathroom and it's easier to go outside than it is inside so you have to even if it's ugly weather you go out, the dog dictates how long it takes," Joseph Hedberd, who lives in Crystal, said. 

Another several inches of snow is expected throughout the weekend.
