Heavy rain on Saturday morning gradually turned to wet, heavy snow by mid-afternoon in the Southern Hills, as a spring snowstorm dumped up to 10-inches in certain areas.
The rain and cool temperatures forced the postponement of the Great American Cleanup, which will now take place on Saturday, May 23, with signup at 8 a.m. in Centennial Park.
As the snow piled up, the planned Mother’s Day Volksmarch in Hot Springs also was postponed until May 17. Sign-up will once again take place from 8 to 11 a.m. in Centennial Park, followed by the walk through town, sponsored by the Black Hills Volkssport Association.
The snow caused minor damage to some tree limbs throughout the city.
