Freezing rain hit areas around Brookings Sunday night. Two listeners called in this morning to give me an idea of just how bad it was.

Taylor called in and said that the trip from Brookings to Sioux Falls, which normally takes less than an hour, took him nearly four hours.

Shaun from Volga said that it took him 30 minutes just to get to the dumpster 100 feet outside of his apartment. The parking lot was so slippery the wind spun him around trying to walk across the ice. Eventually he used a shovel as a propeller to get there and back.
