Like a guest that never leaves, Old Man Winter just doesn't get the hint - it's spring! His latest bout shatters April snowfall records, cancels another day of school for many area students and closes some local businesses.
Monday morning, visibility was low as the thick spring snow came down. However, by the afternoon, most of the main roads, including Interstate 90, were clear and even dry in many places.
According to Rapid City Police Spokesperson Tarah Heupel, there were 15 accidents in Rapid City since around 10 p.m. Sunday night when the snow began to fall. Lieutenant Rick Miller with the South Dakota Highway Patrol says troopers investigated 2 accidents Monday, and estimated there were 14 cars in the ditch.
Farther west into Wyoming, the white stuff caused travel problems. No travel was advised on highways in the Sheridan area, including interstate 90. Even on Main Street in Sheridan, vehicles had a hard time maneuvering through the snow and slush.
