First off, I'd like to express my sympathy to everyone out in NE who are being effected by the historic flooding.  I've been monitoring what has been ongoing in your state and its heartbreaking seeing the destruction of the floods/ice flows.  The loss of life is never easy and that also goes for the poor animals as well.  I think your state has the only members on this Sub that are in ground zero of these floods.  Has anyone else been directly effected by the floods?  Just curious.

 

Meantime, Spring officially begins this week and boy does this 7-day look better....

Its very unfortunate for those folks out in NE suffering these floods. Hopefully, lives are being saved and not lost. I have a friend who lives there and told me that the situation is horrible.

 

 

Btw: Your extended looks splendid!

The flooding is so hard to witness. These big floods hit after late winter snow storms and I can not imaging the struggle and heartache. Midwesterners are certainly the hardiest and perhaps the best of America. My Dad was born in Kansas and lived there in his formative years. He was rock solid and we need more like him today.

We'll have bright sunny days. High 70 and lows around 40.
Gorgeous weather that makes you want to get out there and do Spring things. Enjoy guys.

Dang, the golf courses may be ready to go shortly after this week. Wouldn’t be surprised if they let us go out this weekend, actually. Doubt they allow golf carts yet, but I’m guessing the course will be good enough to allow people to walk it.

Not only are we gaining daylight at a rapid rate we are also gaining temperatures also. The average H/L today at Grand Rapids is 45/27 and by Saturday it is 48/29 and by next Monday it is 48/30. One thing to keep in mind is that there is still a lot of snow and ice to our north so anytime we have a NW or north wind it will be a cool one. Also a term we will hear a lot of for some time is “cooler by the lake” It looks like the official low at GRR last night was 20 while here at my house I dropped down to 17.

The snow piles here could stick around until April. There are still piles in my front yard and the parking lot piles some are still huge. And yes there is still snow in the woods around here yet.

When Nebraskans talk of bad winters, they usually go back to the Winter of 1948-1949.  I think this winter may rank towards the top with the devastation after this long, cold, snowy, icy winter.  The area I am in is not by a river or dam, (17 miles away is the Platte River and the closest lake and dam is over 25 miles away), so we haven't had those problems, but there is standing water everywhere.  I saw farm fields yesterday with lower areas that are covered by several feet of water.  Our athletic teams have only had 1 competition, an indoor track meet at UNK on Saturday.  The track is clear, but all fields, pits, etc. are still dealing with standing water and some drifts.  It is really hard to comprehend unless you see it first hand.  Nebraskans are pitching in and helping one another and hopefully there will be disaster aid from the fed. govt., as is the case in other floods, earthquakes, fires, etc. 

 

I could honestly could care less if the main stream media comes out here or not ( I stopped listening to their stuff several years ago).  Our local media is doing a tremendous job covering this, and new media is honestly what people are moving towards anyway.

I would not be surprised if my piles still around till early April (especially in pkg-lot areas). Unless we get a huge warm-up and hvy rains, these piles have the potential to remain put for some time.

Snowboarding ended for me last week, just got the bad news. This was a really crappy end of the season. Usually I get to enjoy some nice spring boarding in a t-shirt. Nothing this year.

Absolutely gorgeous outside...temps are still averaging BN though. Currently at 38F w a blend of sunshine & clouds. Average temps are in the mid 40s, so running a tad BN for today.

 

Btw: lots of frost this morning. It almost looked as if it had snowed.

Wow that’s pretty wild. I’m not even sure what it is here. Ground has definitely been getting much better over the past few days, and 50s and sunny all week should help the ground quite a bit. I doubt they’ll let golf carts go out yet, but walking the course in the upper 50s on Saturday sounds amazing.
