WILLMAR -- State and local highway crews were kept busy Monday plowing roads during a storm that dropped about four inches of snow on the area. Brisk winds whipped around the fluffy snow, which caused limited visibility and drifting on roads.

The western part of the state took the worst beating with zero visibility reported at times, said Jeff Butson, operations superintendent at the Minnesota Department of Transportation's District 8 office in Willmar.
