The airport has re-opened and flights have been cleared for arrival and departure. The snow has moved on, but the city is now in removal mode.
The major issue for officials in Minneapolis was the amount of snow on the roof of the Metrodome. The weight of the freshly-fallen snow has created an unsafe condition and needs to be removed before the building can be opened to the public.
"We weren't getting rid of it fast enough, and since we were hamstrung by the wind, we just said we might as well come back Monday morning," an official told the Pioneer Press. "My belief is everything will be fine for Monday night."
