KELOLAND Residents Battle Slippery Conditions

KELOLAND Residents Battle Slippery Conditions

The snow and ice are back and several KELOLAND residents had to battle slippery conditions Thursday morning. Some struggled on the road, others in their own driveway.

With just about every surface icing up overnight and then snow on top of that, things got a bit dangerous for anyone who had to go outside.

"I've already fell two times on the porch. As soon as I stepped out the door," Lisa Sullivan said.

Judy Middlebrook spent 45 minutes salting her driveway. She had a strategy in place for staying upright.

"It's like, you shovel, but then you kind of slide with it, so you have to take penguin steps," Middlebrook said.

Middlebrook isn't in a hurry and says she doesn't mind the winter weather.

"It hasn't really been that bad. For me it hasn't but I don't have to go to work. When you have to get up and go to work and you have to be up at four so you can shovel all this off so you can get to work at eight. Then it's tough," Middlebrook said.

Despite slipping on the snow and ice, Sullivan still prefers this climate over anything else.

"Then I think I come from California, I'll take this," Sullivan said.

Sioux Falls police say the slippery roads caused 39 crashes, most of those happened between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. as drivers were going to work or school.
