Some nice fatty flakes here right now. Roads already covered. Maybe an inch today. Epic model failure.

All flakes here now. Snow is blowing like crazy on the parking lot and the parking lot is a skating rink.

We have some more moderate snow coming in from Kansas. Maybe this isn't a complete bust after all.

Just woke up for the 5th time, this wind is insane. Back to bed for 20 minutes tho.

Also, this thread has really shown some true colors of people on this forum. Coming in here to see someone with nothing to do with the storm but simply to poke fun at Nebraska for getting screwed is actually insanely rude. I could say 'get a life' but clearly that does nothing. Theyll always be here it seems. Oh well, just was surprised to see how bad this got.

LINCOLN NEBRASKA SNOW TOTALS:

 

 

13-14 : 0"

14-15: 0"

15-16" : 0"

16-17 : 0"

17-18 : Probably 10", so in other words, 0" ​ 5.5"

 

 

# of times it was too warm and ended up being 33 and rain during these years : 20

# of times the storm essentially turned into dust: 25

# of times the storm looked at Nebraska and was like "yeah, good joke" , then ran to Chicago: 50

Coming down pretty well in bursts. Looks like TV static outside my window right now. Watching the heavier snow down in Kansas to see if it comes up here.

Too many thin-skinned people who get all butt-hurt and cant take a joke, and too many people messing with said people when a storm doesn't go exactly the way the models show a few days out.  It's like freaking junior high in here...

 

It would be comical if it wasn't so sad...  :(

The band is a lot wider and more NW than models showed. Lincoln is on the edge and we're scoring pretty well.

Temp already down to 15F at my place. Flash freeze in process. It’s mostly snow here but also some ice pellets hitting the window at times. It’s nasty out there.

Flurries again. A little break before what I believe will be the main event. A couple hours in moderate-heavy snow.

On the SE side of Lincoln we're still on the very edge of the band. a** clenching and praying we don't exit said band.

Getting moderate snow but it's all pixie dust. Looks like an inch. Don't feel like actually measuring

It's a blizzard here by 70th/Pioneers. You don't know how big Lincoln really is till you have a snow event.

God this would be so much more awesome if it wasn't so windy. Visibilities are low here right now, but the flakes are about the same size as a grain of salt. I'm rooting for the clipper tomorrow so we can at LEAST have the grass covered.

Got the original band of light snow coming still, but I don't think that will be much of a factor. Undisturbed snow accumulation here is 1.5", but drifts are much higher. I measured a 6" drift. I'll take it knowing that we have a legit shot at a multi-inch clipper tomorrow to cover the grass.

it sure looks like there is a band of heavy snow heading right towards IC & CR.  Maybe just east of there will be the best spot, but certainly looks like we'll get something.

I guess the total is maybe 1/2" here? Hard to tell because of the wind. Hopefully we can get lucky with one of these weekend clippers because this isn't going to cut it lol.

Gosaints about to get smashed east of the Roch.

The back edge of the line is back building a bit up this way. Getting under some heavier returns. It’s a consolation prize.

I have to say we did a lot better than I thought here in Central Nebraska, at least in Holdrege.  Started snowing heavily with winds gusting to 50 MPH at 12:20 AM and snowed fairly hard for about 4 hours as the band didn't move much from my county.  I looked outside at 2 AM and couldn't see across the street.  I would say we got 3 inches or so.  Just southwest of us in Furnas county I saw reports of 3.7 so I am somewhere in the area.  We actually have drifts in places.  With a few more chances in the next few days it will look more like winter is supposed to.  Right now 9 degrees, wind chill -12.

All done here. One last FU by the band as it intensifies on the very back edge, about 10 miles east of me. Didn't even get enough to cover the grass.

Impossible to measure to due blowing and drifting. But the ground is covered again so I’m happy. Quarter size flakes at the moment.

Have a solid coating of ice here now on roads and sidewalks. Seems to be a mix of snow and sleet occurring now.

i know it's been discussed repeatedly, but it's kind of amazing how bad models did with this storm.  They universally agreed on one thing, there would be a very narrow band of heavy snow.  That simply didn't happen.  The areas that were supposed to get hit the hardest with this band are dry on the radar right now and it's not going to fill in.  The highest report in Iowa so far is 2" just north of Ames.  I wouldn't be surprised if the highest in the whole state ends up being 3 to maybe 4".  Tough storm.

School closed down for the day??

I actually teach at the High School here.  We had a 10 AM start.  Our superintendent made the decision at 5 PM yesterday.  It was actually the correct call as the wind and blowing snow were still ongoing at 5:30 or so when he would have had to decide.  I thought overnight as bad as it looked that we might get out, but no one else changed to closed.  A few of the students that live in the country said gravel roads would be clear then all of a sudden a nice drift over the road.  Our school lot must have had some drifts as when I got here we had large piles at the ends of our lot from the maintenance people clearing it.  All and all a nice little storm.  Still hoping for the Colorado Low.
