I would say 8" is conservative lots of roads blown in but has been nice the last few days. Lots of crops still in but i would bet with sub zero temps next week birds will really bunch up. Overall for december it is average nothing to crazy
We drove the whole way across SD on Monday. Aberdeen might have got 8", maybe. Was pretty windy with the storm so the ditches are pretty full and anywhere to catch snow was drifted. The worked fields probably had 2-3" of snow.
