Over a foot of heavy snow this morning, May 22. We’ve been plowing and knocking snow off some of our trees and bushes to try to save them. Lots of downed branches and power lines across town - stay safe everyone! Our summer traveling RV volunteers are probably wondering what they signed up for...so far they still have heat and power in their RVs. South Dakota weather! ... See MoreSee Less

It will melt soon.

Just be patient, it will improve

Beautiful sight; I love that place!

Only in the Dakotas'!!! I remember our last year volunteering there. It was May and we woke up one morning, opened the door to the RV to let our Sheltie, Molly, out and the ground was covered with about 4 inches of fluffy white stuff. She is a rescue from warmer climes and had never seen snow. She loved it! Bounced around and played like a puppy. Then I went and shoveled out the sidewalks at the Booth House. Those were great times! Stay warm and keep those doors open. They shall come! 😘👍

Looks beautiful all year!

Beautiful in its own way . 😊

Wow! Where is this?

so sorry for the flowers losses
