When will Minnesotans master winter driving conditions?

Year after year Minnesotans, who should know better, continue to drive during winter storms as if they just immigrated here from the tropics. They were at it again within the past 24 hours and will probably continue throughout today and tomorrow. Paul Wash at the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports:

After a day of drenching rain, Twin Cities commuters saw the slowest going of the winter season this morning as a snowfall of several inches took hold and lingered through midmorning.

The State Patrol reported many dozens of crashes and spinouts from Tuesday evening through the morning drive in the metro.
