From the March 9, 1922 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:
Real Winter in South Dakota.
C. E. Hall of west of town, received a letter a few days ago from his brother, Dan, of Bellfourche, S. D., stating that they have been having some real winter weather there. When the letter was written, 66 inches of snow had fallen in two days, and there have been only 6 days since December 22 when the mercury has stood as high as the zero mark.
Mr. Hall is a former resident of this community, having gone to South Dakota 12 years ago.
