Sioux Falls and surrounding areas didn't get hit with as much snow as the northern areas of KELOLAND, but regardless the roads are nothing to mess with.
Snow plummeted to the ground in Sioux Falls Sunday afternoon.
"The main roads are really in pretty good shape, they are quite wet but some of the side roads are where the problem is at. There is a lot of snow pack, it's slushy, it's slippery and that's where the concerns are at today," Sgt. Loren McManus with the Sioux Falls Police Department said.
Snow and strong winds caused closures of Interstates 90 and 29 stranding travelers in Sioux Falls.
"The weather is gross. I got off to take a shower and checked the road report and they said the interstate is closed," truck driver Antoni Pestka said.
McManus says officers were out in full force manning the roads.
"One of the things we see often times is that people forget that there is comprised breaking and it's not so much the slushiness and the compact of the snow it's the slipperiness that not all people are aware of," McManus said.
According to McManus, it's the roads outside of Sioux Falls that are the biggest concern.
"It's not so bad in town because we have the luxury of the buildings and trees to help block some of the wind and keep the snow movement down, but out in the country is where it really gets to be a challenge," McManus said.
One car ended up upside-down in the median on Interstate 90 two miles east of Brandon and another accident happened on Interstate 229 near the Western Avenue exit in Sioux Falls.
McManus says if you are commuting to work Monday plan ahead and make sure your car is clear of snow.
