( Snow ) Storm paralyzes city of Sturgis, residents urged to stay home ( SD )
Meade County Times-Tribune ^ | October 05, 2013 | Deb Holland

Heidi Mayer Kruse has lived in Fargo, N.D. and eastern South Dakota, but she says she has never experienced a storm such as the one that buried their Blucksberg-addition home Friday.

"It's chest deep consistently over our driveway," she said. Kruse and her family were without power most of Friday and into Saturday.

"It was 39 degrees in our living room before power came back on this morning," Kruse said Saturday...

Kruse, like many of her neighbors in the subdivision south of Sturgis, is amazed at the ferocity of the storm.

"Having lived in areas that experience rough winters, I can say with authority - this was a beast of a storm," she said.

Sturgis City Manager Daniel Ainslie said city crews have been very busy. They asked residents Saturday morning to stay home so that crews could plow the streets.

We had a storm like that when we were stationed at Ellsworth AFB in March of 1988; up to two-story rooftops.

Strong the wind blows, east of Rapid City.

Large the drifts are.

Yup, we had a week of those once in the eastern Sierra. Closed the whole area down. They sent in the National Guard to dig folks out.

In ‘89 or ‘90, we had 36 inches of heavy snow in the Twin Cities on Halloween night. Next morning, I fired up the 8 horse snow blower and cleared the driveway. The snow plow truck didn't get by until two days later...

2 years ago on weekend before Halloween had a snowstorm here in Jersey

Because many of trees still had leaves caused branches and entire trees to topple taking down power lines

Spent several days without power......

I wish. I lost track of the over 100 degrees days back in June.

Sorry to hear.

At this point, California has the best climate/temperature/weather in the country. Barely used AC or my pool.
