A major winter storm sweeps through Minnesota and Wisconsin, but very few people had power outages.
That might be the result of Xcel Energy's efforts to keep tree branches away from electric lines. Brian Elwood, a spokesman for Xcel, says many outages during snowstorms happen when tree limbs loaded with wet snow drop onto power lines. For that reason, Xcel has worked to cut away branches that have grown close to the wires. Elwood also believes a lack of wind during the storm prevented lines from being blown down.
(AP) A slow-moving storm has dumped at least 16 inches of snow on parts of Minnesota, blanketing the Twin Cities, making some rural roads impassable and leading to at least one fatal crash. The heaviest snowfall the Twin Cities has experienced in two years led to the cancellation of dozens of flights at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Sunday and caused hundreds of traffic accidents around the state.
Blizzard conditions, blowing and drifting snow made visibility so poor that the state Department of Transportation pulled snowplows off the highways Sunday afternoon in southwest and west Minnesota.
The Minnesota State Patrol reported nearly 600 crashes by Sunday night. The patrol says one person was killed in a crash involving a semi on Highway 61 near Red Wing.
(AP) The state Department of Natural Resources is looking for volunteers to help researchers with a deer mortality study early next year. The DNR is in the third year of a five-year research project examining causes of deer deaths. Each year the agency has relied on volunteers to help gather data in the field.
This time around the DNR is looking for anyone willing to spend a full day in the woods with biologists, checking traps, taking blood samples, performing ultrasounds on does and fitting deer with radio collars and ear tags before releasing them. Biologists plan to work around Winter and Shiocton in January, February and March.
Volunteers can sign up on the DNR's website or by calling project coordinator Mike Watt at 608-221-6376.

With a chance of snow falling as soon as tonight in La Crosse, a local neighborhood group is quickly building a temporary greenhouse for a community garden.
The 'hoop house' going up at the Washburn Neighborhood garden near Viterbo is meant to protect plants that will be in the garden through the winter. The Mayo hospital will use food from that hoop house, and from a permanent greenhouse to be built next year at Western Tech.
