Rain on top of snow makes for messy commute in the Twin Cities

Rain following all the snow the Twin Cities has received made sloppy conditions even worse on Tuesday. 

Many say the commute for both drivers and pedestrians has been difficult.

"Absolutely terrible," said Riley Collins, who lives in Minneapolis.

In Shakopee, crews had to temporarily shut down County Road 69 under a railroad bridge. Even heavy machinery had to scoop and clear the water, snow and ice from one side of the road.

In the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis, some sidewalks are nowhere to be found, disguised under ice.

"It's very difficult, I sometimes walk with a cane," said Daria Kolganova, who lives in Minneapolis. 

"I'd say skating I don't even know if I'd call it walking," Collins said.

But even though her commute is a tad slippery, Kolganova doesn't mind the conditions and thinks we need to embrace it just a little bit more.

"This is the change and it's going to be 90 soon and everyone's going to be complaining about how hot it is so enjoy this," Kolganova said.
