Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The folks from Oscar Meyer are playing "ketchup" today, after their Wienermobile was turned into a chili dog by today's snowstorm.

The Weinermobile was supposed to be in Moose Lake today as a part of its tour across the country; however, the spring storm stranded it at a Canal Park hotel.

"We're definitely a chili dog today; we are relishing our stop today in Duluth. We're hoping people will catch up with us tomorrow once it's warmer," Oscar Meyer hot–dogger, Hannah Carlson, said.

"We joked about how Duluth is having a great winter this spring, the storm was crazy, we're trying to roll with the punches," Carlson added.

The Weinermobile will be at Super One Foods in West Duluth tomorrow from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. as a part of its tour across the country. They will be passing out free prizes.

"It'll cost you a smile," Carlson said.

The prizes are iconic whistles, post cards, stickers and you can take photos with the Weinermobile.

Wienermobile schedule:

-From 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 6 the Weinermobile will be at Walmart in Cloquet.

-Rescheduled: From 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Monday, April 7 the Weinermobile will be at Nash Finch in Moose Lake.
