YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - Snow plows were out and many roads were slippery early Monday in southeastern South Dakota, where residents were digging out from the latest winter storm.

The storm that blanketed much of the Plains and Midwest before moving on to the Northeast dumped more than half a foot of snow on southeastern South Dakota over the weekend. Sioux Falls got nearly 6 ½ inches of snow, while Yankton got about 8 inches, according to National Weather Service reports.

Steve Ballard, who manages several properties in Sioux Falls, began shoveling at 5 a.m. Sunday.

“I was expecting snow, but not quite this much,” he told KSFY-TV. Ballard added that he doesn’t mind shoveling show because “it keeps me in shape.”

Sioux Falls resident Damon Namken said he would rather do anything than shovel snow.

“We came back early from fishing to shovel, so I’d still be fishing” if not for the storm, he told KSFY.

Monday’s forecast called for a chance of light snow in northern South Dakota and in the Black Hills. There also was a chance of light snow in the north and east on Tuesday, and in the south on Wednesday.
