Thanks for the update, SoundGuy. Sturgis is almost tropical! Have a good trip out west. Hopefully I'll get a chance to see that treacherously steep driveway of yours this year.
Apparently east river (that's how we South Dakota people refer to the "other" side of the state!) got hammered with as much rain as snow with this last storm and they are having some pretty serious flooding according to the news.

For those of you from somewhere other than South Dakota here are some fun facts:
If you live in the Black Hills you live in the "Hills. Sturgis is considered in the hills since we are in the last valley before the "flats" to the east. The streets at the end of my neighborhood butt right up to the Black Hills Nt'l Forest. There is a nice little lot for sale around the corner from me for $25k overlooking the Sturgis valley, I-90 and exit 32.
If you live in Rapid City it's just called "Rapid", as in "I'm going to Rapid to do some shopping", as most of you know there isn't much shopping in Sturgis.
West of the Missouri River is called, you guessed it "West River", but us lucky ones get to live in the hills
And as mentioned above, east of the Missouri River is "East River". Another fun fact about "east river" is those people DO NOT participate in daylight savings time. For half the year South Dakota has 2 time zones, in the summer we are all on the same time.
My driveway is NOT as treacherous as Randy's!
