MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A number of school districts reported delays and closings Wednesday morning, as a mix of sleet and snow continued to drop belated winter conditions on Minnesota.

At least a dozen districts in the Twin Cities metro area reported closings, including schools in Anoka-Hennepin, Stillwater, Wayzata, Elk River, Osseo, Hudson, Chisago Lakes, Delano, Eastern Carver County, Farmington, Forest Lake, Hastings, and Mahtomedi.

Woodbury Middle School also announced a closing due to a power outage.

Outside of the Twin Cities, there were hundreds of closings and delays announced at not only schools, but community services, businesses and other establishments.

      Forty years ago when I was in school, I don’t ever remember school being delayed. I can remember school closing early once in awhile, but for the most part life continued. I grew up on a dairy farm. Believe me, those cows got milked day or night, it didn’t matter. We Americans are just one big lazy bunch.

        Who is the “we” that you are referring to?

        Hey Bill, Tell us about the days that the milk truck could not pickup at your farm or when you lost electricity and could not milk by machine. We also remember those days when a snow plow could not come for 3 days… and school was often closed or late, at least in the Minnesota that we lived and farmed.

    Man Minnesotans are getting soft. Come on people. I moved away for a 10 years and lived on the West Coast. I come back and all I hear is people complaining about snow and cold, what? it’s Minnesota, move if you don’t like it. Nobody plays outside anymore, no pick up hockey or football in the winter, I walked to school in 2 miles of snow everyday! Seriously, with bread sacks on my feet as boot liners, went to the U of M and the temp was -30! What a bunch of softies.

      Hey Rita, Does your keyboard have a period or comma? Punctuation is a beautiful thing.

      Rita, I guess we are lucky to have you out cleaning snow at some school that we will not visit today… but don’t get hurt patting yourself on the back, otherwise what would we do? BTW, don’t you appreciate having that nice state job? Kudos…

I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other people think about worries that they just don’t recognize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , folks could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
