The weather outside was frightful

January 3, 2019

Snow and ice between last Wednesday through Friday made the roads hazardous to be out on.

By Shelly Finzen

A major snowstorm blew over the region last week­end. In addition to inches of snow and winds averag­ing 30-45 mph, tempera­tures dropped below zero beginning late in the day on Friday, Dec. 28.
The storm caused roads and highways to be cov­ered and decreased visibil­ity to nearly zero. Several major highways in eastern South Dakota were listed as “no travel advised,” and Brookings County in South Dakota pulled all snow­plows from roads on Fri­day afternoon, due to the lack of visibility.
