October 2013 South Dakota was hit with one of the worst blizzards in recorded history. We received approximately 36 inches of snow at my house which translated into drifts between 5 feet and 10 feet high. We lost power about 30 minutes into the blizzard. Everything in my house runs on electricity and I was NOT prepared for this. I had one Energizer headlamp and a few candles. I had no non-perishable food. Luckily our access to water was not affected.
