Blizzard slams the Dakotas - please pray

North Dakota and Western/Central SD are getting the worst of it. Sioux Falls is just getting a bit of wind and maybe some snow, so we're OK.

Governor Rounds of SD is meeting with staff. Interstate 90 (major east-west route across the state) is closed. I-29 (north-south) might close in a bit. Reports of snow several feet deep in the Black Hills, with wind gusts up to 70 mph on parts of the Plains.

Please pray for all people here, and for public safety, utility and transportation folks.

We were swiped a little in passing yesterday and the day before - only amounting to an inch of wet slushy snow. Nothing much has time to wind up here just east of the Rockies.

Hi, peter... a bit off topic on my part, but I once spent an evening in Limon, CO during a cross-country drive. A cattle rancher there took me out to see his feed pens... it was like something from the movies. Cattle out to the horizons.

When you said "east of the Rockies" I was reminded.

God bless you!
