Snow began just before noon on Monday and continued through the afternoon. Public Works Director Greg Stack estimated the city got five to seven inches of snow, with the most accumulating on the west side of town. With Christmas vacation ending, school started two hours late to give everyone a chance to dig out. Cold temperatures were ushered in with the snow, with Wednesday's high predicted to be below zero. Wind throughout the week will make it seem even colder. To stay warm during this cold spell it's recommended that you wear layers of clothing. While your torso does require the most insulation, you can't neglect your limbs or fail to insulate areas like your neck, head and ears, where blood vessels run close to the surface, losing heat more quickly. Bundle up like these school girls and enjoy the South Dakota winter!
