As the snow continues to fall, many of us are wondering what it's going to be like driving to work in the morning.
Crews are out in Sioux Falls plowing the streets for tomorrow's commute.
We were out driving tonight and it was near white out conditions at times.
Even here right in the heart of Sioux Falls.
We shot this video Thursday evening around 8:30 p.m.
Slick conditions caused this SUV to have an accident about a block away.
But we met a few people who were driving who said it's not too bad.
In any event, they say they have places to go and people to see.
The storm is on path headed north, which brought some travelers from the south.
Susan Day said "we're from Newcastle, Nebraska and we're on our way to Portland, Oregon for a wedding. We were to fly out of Omaha this morning and our flight was canceled. And no flights out of Omaha tomorrow, so we got the last 5 seats out of Sioux Falls tomorrow, hopefully."
Carmen Dougherty said she has a good reason for driving around on a night like this.
"We're heading to state wrestling in Watertown so we're going to stay in Brookings this evening and head there tomorrow morning," Dougherty said.
Dougherty said they tried to get a head start to beat the snow.
"We thought we were going to try to beat it but we took a little bit longer getting going and the roads aren't too bad yet, so hopefully as we drive, we'll drive out of it," Dougherty said.
And highway patrol has some advice for all of us when we head out on the roads tomorrow morning.
Sgt. Robert Schmidt, South Dakota Highway Patrol, said "get on the Internet for Safe Travel USA and the biggest thing is just allowing yourself extra time in the morning to get to your destination, whether its work, doctor appointments, ex cetera. to slow down , use your seat belt , and have your winter preparedness kit."
And Dougherty agrees, she has her own tips for driving in the snow.
"I just drive slow, just to try to avoid any accidents whatsoever, it's very important to drive slow and to not overdrive the conditions," Dougherty said.
These are just a few helpful tips which may serve as a reminder for all of us before we hit the road tomorrow.
