There were a lot of children and adults enjoying the sledding hill at Spellerberg Park. Families I talked with said the weather today was perfect for sledding. The weather wasn't only used for fun, as some homeowners used the warmer weather to do yard work. Chris Ellis was using the warm-up to clean off his driveway and take down his Christmas lights.
“I wasn't outdoors at all earlier this week so it's a lot more enjoyable, but I do like the cold crisp, you know the sun's shining and all that. It's actually nice out. It's just when it gets too cold man you can't go out in it,” Ellis said.
Ellis has been in Florida for the last seven years before moving back to South Dakota last year. He says even with the cold, he enjoys the seasons of the Rushmore State.
