The weather is so bad in the Great Plains that even plow trucks are getting stuck.
Heavy snow, strong rain, hail storms and tornadoes hit the region in the last few days, cutting power and stranding drivers while causing at least 3 deaths.
While the Dakotas are digging out of up to 43 inches of snow, Nebraska and Iowa are reeling from nine tornadoes that touched down Friday evening.
Rapid City plow driver Jesse Curnow said Saturday morning things weren't moving so smoothly in chest-high drifts after a record 21-inch snowfall.
"I'm trapped. I can kind of move, but only a little bit," Curnow said by telephone from the cab of his truck.
Here are some images of the record-breaking storm.
