Summit, the Bermuda triangle of weather on Interstate 29, almost never disappoints.
I made a quick trip to Langford, where my immediate relatives make up 12 of the roughly 220 students in the school district, in order to attend the State B Basketball Tournament in Aberdeen.
That area of the state has had more winter than I’ve seen in a long while. Snow in Waubay was piled so high that the town’s green population sign was the only thing sticking out of the bank. The pole had virtually disappeared. I didn’t stop for a photo because I wanted to get out of there before the next storm blew through.
I did take this photo out of the car window on my trip there. It’s just west of the Summit exit on SD Highway 12. They have cut the snow out of the median ditches. My guess is because there was no more room to plow it off the roads. It was sometimes impossible to see cars traveling the opposite direction.
I realize I shouldn’t take pictures out the car window while driving. I just held up phone and pressed the button without focusing on anything in particular, except the road I was driving down.
