Snowplows in July
RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA- A funny thing happened on a warm July day in South Dakota. Snowplows had to be called out after an intense hailstorm dropped as much as 4 inches of the ice pellets.
A sheriff's deputy says it happened on a highway south of Rapid City and he says it was "definitely weird" for mid-July.
The National Weather Service says the pea-sized hail came down for the about 15-minutes and the area was shrouded in heavy fog as the hail melted and caused a few cars to skid off the road.
