Snow storm delivers for some; fizzles for others

Posted:

Many storm reports are making their way in Wednesday morning, but so far there is a wide range of snow totals.
 
Seven miles south west of Rapid City picked up only five inches of snow.

While for others, the storm certainly lived up to it's expectations.

Hill City picked up nearly eight inches of the white stuff and just one mile east of Hot Springs picked up seven inches.

The storm, though not forecasted to be of the same magnitude as last weeks storm, was still a threat enough to close many area schools.

But, despite the havoc these snow storms brings, many people don't seem to mind.

 
"I think it's a good thing, with the drought we've been having it's good to see any kind of moisture, no matter what form it's in," says Frank Archambault of Rapid City.
 
"I love snow! I was born and raised in Chicago, where we have actual winters, so this is nothing. I mean, we'll have snow and it'll melt and we'll have nice weather. It could be a lot worse," says Tina Kennebeck of Rapid City.
 
The storm was forecasted to dump as much of a foot of snow on Rapid City, and forecasters say we're not done yet, more snow is possible through the day Wednesday.
