(KXNET) — North Dakota’s latest winter storm came creeping in today, starting Monday night with some freezing rain in many areas, which was them covered with snow early Tuesday morning.

A number of Mandan drivers said the drive to work was slippery, but Mandan street crews have been using sand to provide better traction for vehicles in icy roads. Falling snow is now covering the roads, so caution is obviously advised since it is hard to spot ice patches.
