A reader in Alden sent us this photo of a semitrailer blocking Minnesota Highway 109’s intersection with Interstate 90.

Roads could be much safer if truckers were allowed more grace time for weather and were under less pressure to venture despite blizzards and other lousy weather conditions. --Submitted
