The storm is over, but some people are still digging out from under more than a foot of snow in some areas. Huron is one of the cities that was hit hard.
They may not have got as much snow as Aberdeen, but they weren't that far behind. With just over nine inches, people were still digging out Monday afternoon.
"This is a lot of snow and this is wet snow too," Huron resident Scott Ptak said.
Ptak spent a good part of his Monday afternoon behind the controls of a snow blower.
"This is our old house for sale here and we got another one over there. I was blowing for about three hours over there and I've been here for about half an hour now working on this one," Ptak said.
Three years ago, Ptak moved here from Florida to raise his family. He says snow blowing isn't much different than mowing lawn. Other than the temperature, of course.
"In Florida, you gotta mow the grass once or twice a week in 90-degree heat and you're sweating all the time. So if you’re a property owner, you gotta take care of your property no matter what. Whether it’s snow blowing or mowing the grass, it's gotta get done," Ptak said.
While it may it be surprising, he says he prefers this over the 90-degree Sunshine State. And while it may be hard work, Ptak knows that many farmers are probably glad to see the moisture.
"We went in to winter just as dry as could be. So I know this will be good for everybody. This will be good for the lakes and the rivers and all the farmers; it'll be a good thing. As long as it doesn't keep doing this every other week," Ptak said.
Ptak also said that the city of Huron did a pretty good job of getting the snow moved and the streets cleared.
