The Ice Storm of 2017


Much of Nebraska was spared from the ice storm forecasted for earlier this week. The temperature hovering around 32 degrees kept the worst of the ice at bay. Further south, in the Hastings and Kearney areas, wasn’t so lucky. There were several accidents and power outages reported.

Overall, we were blessed conditions weren’t worse. Those that didn’t have to be out stayed home, safe and warm.

I commend the city crews, the highway department and everyone else who treated the roads for those that had to drive in the icy conditions, especially keeping the streets safe for travel in case of emergencies.

There were many people who stayed at their jobs to ensure they would be at work the following day, such as nursing home and hospital employees.

I personally would like to thank everyone who goes above and beyond, ensuring the safety of all of us.

We are fortunate to have such wonderful people in our midst.

Today is a beautiful, sunny day. Enjoy it!

I took the pictures below of the trees in our neighborhood, glistening from the ice the storm provided.
