Moving to Sioux Falls is a big change

A little over three years ago, I accepted a promotion within my company that required me to relocate to Sioux Falls.

I moved from the southeast to South Dakota during the summer.

The weather was beautiful and the landscape stunning. It was a relief to get away from the excessive humidity and enjoy such cooler conditions. The temperature was consistently in the mid-seventies and low-eighties. I spent the season biking the Sioux Falls Greenway trail that hugs the riverbank of Big Sioux River for thirty miles. On especially sunny days, I enjoyed kayaking and paddleboarding on the gently flowing river. When I felt like being lazy, I’d take a book and some lunch to Falls Park, where the waters of the river bumble over quartzite cliffs in gorgeous waterfalls. I was delighted by Sculpture Walk and wandering the downtown area where the work of local and international artists are displayed in an open-air-style gallery. I attended outdoor concerts and the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Festival. When the fall weather settled in, there was an abundance of amazing fresh produce. The Sioux Falls restaurants locally-source ingredients for freshness and sustainable food practices. I was amazed with the changing colors of the leaves. I felt confident in my decision to accept the job. With my raise in pay, I could afford nicer housing as well. I didn’t start to second-guess my choice until winter. I had never seen snow before. I was not prepared for the severe cold. By Halloween, the temperature had dropped into the twenties. By Christmas, conditions were in the negatives. There was still snow on the ground at Easter.
