Freezing rain coated vehicles in ice in Rapid City, SD. Car windows became ice windows! Watch as people roll the windows down revealing sheets of ice in place of the windows.

I got stuck at the office after working a midnight shift when a blizzard hit Wesern South Dakota. The dayshift forecasters barely made it in two hours late! This is what I saw when I finally made it back to the apartment. Rapid City got about 9-12 inches of snow.

Debt Ceiling Political Cartoon From the Rapid City Journal: The Ceiling and the Wall

From the 07.29.11 edition of my hometown newspaper, the Rapid City Journal.

The Journal has always been pretty impartial/live-and-let-liv​e in its editorial stance. The "letters to the editor" column can be pretty entertaining, though. Rapid City’s cohort of people that go to church has skewed Pentecostal in the past decade or so; there are several Big Box churches on the highway to Mount Rushmore that weren’t there before. Concurrently there’s been an influx of professionals and retirees from CA and the Midwest who are typically more moderate in their outlook. The first auto-responds to any cultural or political piece, and the second scolds them. 🙂
