Thief River Falls, MN (WDAY TV) -- The first snowfall of the year started early this morning in Thief River Falls, Minnesota.

Residents scrambled to find their winter coats and boots, shovels and snow blowers after having summer-like temperatures in the 70's this past weekend.

The wet, heavy snow pulled down power lines and temporarily cut service to 65 hundred customers. A number of schools in Northwestern Minnesota either delayed or cancelled classes all together.
