Watertown Receives First Snow Of The Season

November 19, 2011, 10:10 PM by Jon Berg

Watertown Receives First Snow Of The Season
WATERTOWN, SD - It may be only days away from Thanksgiving, but in Watertown, it's starting to look a lot like Christmas.

"I can keep warm and put enough clothes on, so I don't mind the snow," Watertown resident Diann Sumner said. 

Sumner is one of many residents shoveling their property after more than four inches of snow.

Mike Marotz of Watertown is taking care of the white stuff in front of his business downtown. He says it's just one of the joys of living in the midwest.

"We're all from South Dakota, we all know what to expect and it's hard to always get yourself mentally ready for the first one, but you know we're all having fun now shoveling," Marotz said.

And those shoveling away the snow Saturday in Watertown say they don't really mind the snow, they're just glad it came in the form of snow rather than freezing rain like some parts of the area. 

"I'd rather have snow than ice, hopefully it'll be gone by Monday or Tuesday," Sumner said.

And for Marotz, He says the snow had to come sooner or later.

"It took awhile this year, we're not as bad as last year, it took a little longer before we got the first one, maybe it'll warm up and we'll get a January thaw, who knows," Marotz said.

But this first winter wonderland, is just the beginning of a winter full of flakes.

"It's fine, it's just what we live with," Marotz said.
