I left work at 3:00 p.m Friday from Marshall. I live in Lucan. I traveled eastbound on Highway 19 and saw some spin outs and cars in ditch. It normally takes me 20 to 25 minutes to get home, but Friday it took me 2.5 hours to get home. I nearly ended up in the ditch four times. ...  I did not see one plow out on this road. Only in Lucan. Very high gusts and zero visibility. Please drive with caution or stay home. These photos show how powerful a Blizzard can do. I did notice my power was out during the day as well. Several power outages were reported throughout Minnesota. I heard from a relative in the Brainerd ares stating that Crow Wing power has pulled crews off of the road until Saturday. Those with power outages may have to wait till the storm dissipates.
