The word blizzard is common in these parts, and there are even etymologists (those who study where words come from) who tracked the word’s early beginnings. Many experts examined publications from all over the globe and found the earliest usage of the word was actually in a newspaper in Estherville, Iowa in 1870. That’s pretty cool, and would make sense; it’s doubtful that it was coined by some sun soaked, beach-going novelist in Florida.

While it wasn’t huge, many in eastern South Dakota, southwest Minnesota, and northwest Iowa woke up to some more snow early on Wednesday. Travel conditions were a little tough in northeast South Dakota as some were on the way to work!

Today’s 0.9” in Sioux Falls pushes the seasonal snow total up to 48.8”, which is more than 21 inches above what the seasonal average for today’s date would be. At this point last year we had 20 inches LESS snow, and sadly the snowiest month on average is still on the way, with March bringing an average of 8.4” for the City of Sioux Falls.
