So it snowed. In Sioux Falls we got somewhere between six and seven inches. 30 miles south in my hometown of Beresford they got twice that amount, registering 13 inches.

A friend of mine started taking pictures at 5:30 p.m. with a ruler on his deck and posted them each hour as the snow accumulated. It's pretty easy to see when the heaviest of the snow hit. Of course by the time the first of these photos was taken it had already been snowing in Beresford for several hours.
