Marsha Lapka has quite the story to tell. Lapka was visiting Spearfish and took a picture of the snow that nearly reached the top of the garage door.
"We ended up shoveling because it was so wet we couldn't use the snow blower," Lapka said.
Lapka and others have sent some amazing photos to the uShare gallery at KELOLAND.com.
But power crews have little time to take in the wonder caused by the storm.
"Yeah, the terrain has been difficult, although the weather is almost in the 70s, it is going to melt rather quickly and then we're going to end up with mud issues, you know," Mutch Usera of Black Hills Power said.
Like neighbors helping others dig out from the storm, Black Hills Power is receiving help from other utilities. However, they say those without power should be patient.
"We have a lot of customers who live in isolated areas. Those are the ones that may be out there for a few days if not up to a week," Usera said.
And for those snapping these photos, it's something they'll never forget.
"It was just crazy," Lapka said.
Black Hills Power is also reminding everyone to stay away from downed power lines because they could still be charged.
