Episode Narrative A powerful winter storm moved across the Northern and Central Plains, bringing heavy snow and very strong winds. The worst part of the storm impacted the area from Christmas morning through the morning of December 26, when snow and wind gusts to 80 mph produced near zero visibilities. Six inches to over two feet of snow fell across the plains, with the heaviest amounts from northwestern South Dakota southward to the Pine Ridge. Drifts of five to ten feet were reported. Many roads were closed or impassable during the storm, incuding Interstate 90, which was closed across the state for over 48 hours. Some power outages were also reported.
