Record snowfall in South Dakota


An early September winter storm in the Black Hills has dumped up to 8 inches of snow in the area, while Rapid City received its earliest snowfall in more than 120 years.

Jon Chamberlain, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Rapid City, said almost 1 inch of snow had fallen in downtown Rapid City by 8:30 a.m. Thursday while 2 inches was measured in higher elevations in town.

This is of course anecdotal and does not prove my global cooling thesis. Nevertheless we are starting to see more and more of these stories. These colder temperatures are consistent with what one expect to see if we are entering a sunspot lull, which we are currently.
