With a winter storm set to drop between two and four inches of snow in the Twin Cities on Tuesday (Nov. 10), what better way to usher in "Winter Hazard Awareness Week," which began Monday and continues through Friday (Nov. 13).

Tuesday, Nov. 10:           Outdoor Winter Safety

Wednesday, Nov. 11:      Winter Fire Safety

Thursday, Nov. 12:          Indoor Winter Safety

Friday, Nov. 13:               Winter Driving
