Frankie Isn’t Saying Relax – Massive Blizzard to Hit South Dakota
Frankie Macdonald has been working pretty hard lately. This is the third time this season he has alerted South Dakotans to a massive snowstorm that could hit our area.
Frankie is an amateur weatherman from Nova Scotia and keeps an eye to the sky. When dangerous weather looms, Frankie is prepared with storm details and information on how we can plan to ride out the storm.
I think Samsung, Pepsi and Coke owe this guy some money for all the endorsements.
Frankie says to expect six to 12 inches of snow Sunday evening, January 21. He's not kidding.
