Snowplows Needed for Western South Dakota, in July?

Last Updated by Nate Wek on

According to the Rapid City Journal, the Rapid City area experienced a strong hailstorm on Tuesday night. This storm occurred just south of the city on Highway 16, and it left nearly four inches of slippage on the road. Snowplows were called in to remove the slushy mess. Yes that’s right, only in South Dakota will we see snowplows being utilized in July.

The National Weather Service is reporting that most of the hail was pea-sized, but it still accumulated quickly on the road.
