Frozen Falls of Sioux Falls February 2021 [Video]
It has been a frigid cold February in Sioux Falls. We are on track to break records for cold temperatures. So what better way to celebrate the Arctic atmosphere than by taking a little stroll through Falls Park?
There is an old Scandinavian saying. 'There's No Such Thing as Bad Weather, just bad clothing'. Although I'm not Scandinavian just a reformed Minnesotan I subscribe to just that thinking.
The falls were created over 14,000 years ago the glacial ice sheet moved through the area. I'm assuming it was on a day with temps much like this.
Sioux Falls namesake Falls Park is absolutely beautiful in the wintertime. Plus you don't have to worry about crowds and the bugs aren't bad at all.
On my February stroll, I took this video of the Falls water flow. They are almost totally frozen over. And I'm guessing with the weather the next few days they may freeze over.
