Hey Stormland TV. Doesn’t this frickin’ story ever get old?

Yes. Life is so damn boring in Sioux Falls, we wait for torrential rains or spring floods so we can go to Falls Park and watch the water go over the rocks;

The rushing water of Falls Park had visitors rushing to get a good view. The park filled up with sightseers Friday who wanted to check out the cascading current.

I guess it is a change of pace from our normal leisurely activities in Sux Falls; eating $8 dollar steaks at Applebees and watching NASCAR.

If the city would fix the Falls Park web cam everyone could watch the Falls.

It that is the biggest story around, I’d say we have it pretty good.

No one has gone to city council with a weapon to ‘even the score’

We don’t hear about the mass murders or mass suicides.

We can walk down some streets at night without having to look like Rambo.

The folks up north (Renner, Dell Rapids) are going to have a rough time of it for a short spell, but they will pull through, they are after all from South Dakota.

It’s not about being the ‘BIG Story’ it is about being a Non-story.

Is a $8 dollar steak from Applebees any worse than a $12 steak at The Outback?

I’m the first to admit I’ve had a better steak at Applebees than I have at half a dozen “real” steak places in the area… and it costs about 60% less.

As far as your point about this post – that is small-town local media for you. Just like you can expect a story about how many car accidents there were during the first snowfall or how many tickets were written for school zone violations the first week of school, water going over the falls is always newsworthy when you have nothing else to talk about.

My favorite is when they report on whatever farmers are bitching about at the local gas station today.

It was such Big News they had to get Hemmingsen on again.

They could have thrown him over the Falls and see if he floats like a buoy.

I’d say we’re doing pretty well. I like having pleasantries be the big story. Much better than murders, city waste (though I’m sure there is some of that), fights, drugs etc. If people want that stuff, they can always move to an “exciting” city like phoenix.
