Early snow slows traffic in Black Hills

By  | 

It started with freezing fog Sunday night and turned into snow early Monday morning.


That snow made travel a challenge in parts of the Black Hills Monday.

Here in Rapid City, we got about two inches of snow Monday, with the heavier totals to the north and to the east.
They've issued no travel advisories in western, central and northeastern North Dakota with whiteout conditions in a lot of areas there.
Rapid City had crews out early Monday morning, starting with main lines, hills and collector roads.
They say they'll be concentrating on plowing and treating school routes, with Rapid City Schools scheduled to re-open Tuesday.
Those crews will be working to clear the downtown area tonight.
If your business is plowing snow, then this latest storm was good news for you, with plenty of work to be had around the area.
And there were some, who simply won't let a little snow and cold keep them from their daily workout out on Rapid City's bike path.
On at day like Monday, here is plenty of solitude to be had there.
