(Moorhead, MN) -- Snow, slush and ice-covered roads are reported across the whole northwest corner of the state, north and west of a line roughly from Fergus Falls through Bemidji to International Falls. State Patrol Sergeant Jesse Grabow advises drivers, "When you start dealing with freezing rain, snow, slush, whatever it might be, you need to slow it down and drive according to the conditions. Just by backing it down can make a big difference. Keep the cruise control off." Sergeant Grabow says check road conditions at 511mn.org, take your time and avoid distractions -- and be sure to wear your seatbelt.
