Episode Narrative Snowfall of 6 to 10 inches and winds gusting to over 40 mph produced widespread blizzard conditions on New Years Eve in southeast South Dakota near and west of a Pickstown to Mitchell to De Smet line. Roads were closed and many businesses were forced to close as travel became difficult to impossible. Lesser snow amounts with strong winds produced winter storm conditions east of the blizzard area, with very low visibilities not as widespread. The storm continued to midnight, or the end of the year 2010, in most areas.
