The latest winter blast dumped six inches of snow on Sioux Falls. It’s the most snow the city has seen in the past few years and only the second citywide snow alert of the winter.
So, many Sioux Falls residents spent their Friday moving snow.
"Just out blowing snow, having some fun," Gene McDaniel said.
McDaniel was having so much fun he decided to use his snow blower on all the sidewalks in the neighborhood.
"That's what neighbors do. Sometimes they do it for me and sometimes I do it for them. It's kind of what we do and hopefully a lot of people will get that idea," McDaniel said.
The six inches was the most to fall in the city in more than two years. It was enough to cause cars to get stuck on some side streets. Sioux Falls officials say that shouldn't be a problem this weekend.
"I'm hoping to have everything done in the city by noon on Sunday," Galynn Huber with the Sioux Falls Street Department said.
Even though this is the largest snowfall for Sioux Falls since December of 2010 the city says it won't take any longer to plow the streets.
"If it's over three inches, it doesn't make any difference if it's ten inches. It all pushes the same," Huber said.
The city hopes most of the streets will be clear by midnight Friday night, then crews will clear out piles downtown.
As for the sidewalks and driveways around the city those should be done Friday too, if you’re McDaniel's neighbor.
"Like I say, it's a great surprise and hopefully that's what some of my neighbors will feel today," McDaniel said.
