This week, we got to feel the effect of a nasty Dakota storm. Producing as much as 18 inches of snow in Western South Dakota and as much as 3 inches of rain in Yankton, South Dakota; this storm created a first-hand look of what snow, rain, freezing temps, and melting snow can actually do. 605 Sheds feel for those that may have been harmed by the storm, and many of our own felt the burden with broken storm drains and flooded basements. Sometimes, however, a storm can have a positive impact on a community. One of our father’s basement was flooding and the road to get to the house had a river through it and was not accessible. Therefore, we couldn’t get a clean-up crew to the house. What was worse, was that the home owner was out of town and had no idea how bad his house was damaged. Fortunately for him, he had neighbors that volunteered their time to go and help mitigate the damage by removing carpet.
During these tough times, it’s easy to question why we live here. However, it’s the act of our neighbors helping us out when we are in times of need that confirm why we do actually live here. It also confirms why we love to do business here. The Midwest is the best type of people, and we love serving you the best we can. Stay safe out there everybody, and hopefully spring is right around the corner.
