Another version of this said they were up on the first and they completely blocked the places to pull off and view the monument... but I can’t post that one on Free Republic.
However...it looks as though the mods have decided this is weather-related.
After reading the article on the Gannett owned Argus-Leader, and after reading several posts here from people who seemed to know more about the story and South Dakota weather conditions than what was found on the Twitter comments posted on Twitchy, I was the Mod who added "[Weather Related]" to your title and moved this into our Chat Forum, under the Weather topic Sidebar.
Then another Mod arrived and noticed an urgent note from Kristinn who said that the added "[Weather Related]" comment to the title was false. Since that Mod agreed with Kristinn's assessment that the "[Weather Related]" comment was false, the added comment was removed.
This thread has now been moved back into the News Forum and since other Posters have also posted the same story, we have added this to Breaking News in order to stem the flow of duplicate threads.
We hope that this helps in understanding the process we sometimes go through and what happened to your thread. We are terribly sorry for any and all inconvenience this may have caused you and any Posters currently living in South Dakota and those who may be on their way to a vacation in South Dakota.
Thank you Kristinn as always for your ever vigilant assistance and suggestions.
