One Year Later

A year ago today, the power went out.

Okay. Let's try that again.

A year ago today, the Rapid City area received record snowfall. It led to region-wide power outages for days (or weeks) and traumatically high death rates of livestock.

This week, we've actually gotten a fairly equivalent amount of rain (one foot of snow amounts to roughly 1 to 1.5 inches of rain) ... but as it stayed above freezing while it rained, it's just been a wet week. Nothing noteworthy.

Thank goodness.

Here's hoping that the snow holds off a few weeks longer...

I'd rather not do this again. Ever.
