Warmth Brings People Outside

January 5, 2012, 5:15 PM by Ben Cathey

Warmth Brings People Outside
SIOUX FALLS, SD - The winter wonderland continues across KELOLAND. Only instead of our normal weather pattern, many people are enjoying the record temperatures and melting ice.

"I'm loving this. It can stay like this for the rest of the winter and I won't complain a bit," Justin Heath of Sioux Falls, who is originally from Arkansas, said. 

Falls Park was filled with people taking advantage of their lunch breaks to grab rare opportunity to break cabin fever.

"I'm hoping it stays like this. I can handle days like this," Ann Mays said. 

In fact this week you'll find more people packing sunglasses and smiles instead of the usual parka.

"I think winter's gonna get bad. I think it could possibly. I think it's just teasing us right now," Sarah Heath, who came to Sioux Falls after living in West Virginia, said.

Despite the 60 degree temperatures, there's still an ice veil covering parts of the Falls.

We hope you had the chance to get some fresh air Thursday, whether it be January golfing, biking or just taking a nap because cooler weather moves in Thursday evening. Still the dry ground should help keep us above normal for the near future.

"I wanted to come out and take pictures in shorts on a january day in south dakota. I think that's pretty historic," Joanne Puetz Anderson of Brookings said.
