Now playing: the MnDOT ballet

Like the cavalry rescuing the town under siege, the Minnesota Department of Transportation has been given a hero’s response on Twitter after posting this video of a team of plows tackling Interstate 694 this week around Maplewood and Oakdale.

Well, sort of. There are exceptions.

“It would be super great if you would stop doing this during the evening rush hour on 494,” one commenter, unclear on the concept, said.

MnDOT can’t win.
