Arkansas Native comes to South Dakota

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - They say April showers bring May flowers, but here in the Black Hills Spring has brought more snow. Here is what Meredith has learned about going from sunny and 75 degrees to blowing snow and 20 degrees.

Meredith moved to South Dakota last month, in pursuit of a job- what she didn't realize, is that South Dakota winters are more intense than Arkansas'.

During her lifetime in Arkansas, Meredith never had to purchase a heavy coat- coming into Rapid City, that was the first purchase she made.

One thing Meredith says the one thing she underestimated was four-wheel drives cars, realizing now that they are a crucial part of life.
