Minnesota mom's warning: Make sure your vehicle's doors are shut

CLAREMONT, Minn. (WSAW) -- A Minnesota mom has a warning for other Midwest families—check your vehicle's doors.

Stephanie Hokanson of Claremont, Minnesota said Sunday morning she found her van filled with snow after one of the vehicle’s doors was left open by one of her children. High winds have created blizzard conditions in parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The photos show the back seat of Hokanson’s van with several inches of snow. She captioned her photos with 'Never carpool with Elsa'. A reference to the Disney movie, "Frozen".

She tells NewsChannel 7 the clean-up process began Sunday night.
They plan to use a shopvac to finish removing the snow.
