The first snowstorm of the 2017-2018 season packed a punch; breaking a snowfall record in Duluth, causing damage to portions of Duluth's shoreline, and leading to several car accidents including a couple fatal ones.
Ok, so it's not quite winter yet, but snow is coming and it's getting cold. Sooner or later we will get the big one. Maybe it's time to start preparing. These are items you might not think to put in your car but can save you or your family's life.
As the track and timing of this strong weather system becomes more clear, the National Weather Service has decided to issue a winter storm watch for portions of Northern Minnesota, marking the first winter storm watch of the 2017-2018 winter season.
