OPINION: 'Snow is nice until you have to drive in it'
There's nothing like the first snowfall of the year. When I was young, a heavy storm meant no school, and my sisters and I would play cards with Dad—after we did the farm chores. Snow is nice until you have to drive in it. Though South Dakotans know how to handle snow and cold...
