Winter storm pounds Midwest

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Officials in the upper Midwest are urging people to stay off the roads if possible, rather than risk driving on ice or through wind-driven snow.
Much of central Wisconsin is blanketed in 10 to 12 inches of snow. Another 2 inches of snow with some freezing drizzle is expected today in Madison, where tens of thousands of protesters have rallied outside the Capitol for nearly a week to protest Gov. Scott Walker's proposal to cut public employees' collective bargaining rights.
In Minnesota, more than a foot of snow has fallen in the Twin Cities. And up to 10 inches of snow has fallen on parts of southern Michigan, where forecasters say up to 3 more inches of snow is expected along with high winds that could cause blowing snow and drifts.
Hundreds of flights were canceled at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and at Detroit Metropolitan Airport as the storm started moving through yesterday.
