SD Natives Brave Mid-Atlantic Snow

Bookmark and Share

It's not just folks in the Midwest who are dealing with a snowy winter, parts of the mid-Atlantic and northeast states are battling their second storm within a week.  And one South Dakota native, Erin Fink, who moved to the DC area a few months ago, gave us her insight on the snow.  KDLT's Dan Bronis has the snowy details.

After a wild winter storm that hit the mid-Atlantic region last weekend, another one knocked on its door step today bringing with it snow, winds and brutally cold temperatures.  Here in the northern plains, we are used to those weather conditions, but the east coast rarely sees a winter like this one.

Erin Indahl Fink said, ""This DC winter is right up there with a really treacherous winter that we've had in South Dakota."

Fink - a Burke, South Dakota native now living in the DC metro area- says that travel is near impossible in some locations. This has many cities advising people to stay off the roads due to an additional two feet of snow that could fall by tomorrow morning.

"If you do not have to drive, do not drive. Do not go out on the roads. Do your civic duty by keeping your car off the roads," said Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley.

The slick roads have also caused a strain in local grocery supplies.

"I know the supermarkets were really crazy the past several days. There's been absolutely no milk, no bread also," said Fink.

"I'm stocking up. Except I have to find the milk. There's none here so I have to move out to another store, and if you look at the snack aisles, it's almost empty," said Irish Stubblefield.

Washington Dulles airport has received over 65 inches of snow so far for the year, that breaks the old record of 62 inches set back in the 95-96 season, here in Sioux Falls were sitting at 50 inches for the year.  Washington Dulles and Reagan National airports are currently closed causing major travel ripples across the country.
