Three inches of fresh snow with zero breeze makes for a beautiful morning scene. It’s hard not to be amazed by the silence and white glow in the early dawn after a surprise snow in the night.
When I looked out from my front step, I knew my driveway was out there somewhere between those rocks and that building. It wouldn’t be bad if I went off track a little anyway.
The drive in on Interstate 29 was one of those 40-mph excursions, complete with the opportunity to pass a snowplow that has to use part of the driving lane to get the job done. That means hugging a little of that rough, slushy, snowy mess just outside of the driving lane. If people take their time, it usually works out.
The Interstate was white compared to Sioux Falls streets, which as you see below, have all the big equipment out. It almost looks like it didn’t snow here.
