The Missouri River by Decatur is Still Running High

We went for a drive last Saturday around Burt County. We decided to see how high the Missouri River is. It is still running high as can be seen in the photos I took. I assume they are still letting water out at Gavin’s Point. This has been such a tragic year for so many people who have lost so much due to the widespread flooding. One never knows what Mother Nature has in store. All photos credit of Denise Gilliland, Editor and Chief/Kat Country Hub.

The Blizzard of 2019

The blizzard of 2019 is in the books! At least this one. The way Mother Nature is behaving, maybe there will be another one before Spring arrives. Let’s hope not though! I am so glad we finally gave in and bought a snow blower! We love having some of the local boys scoop for us to earn money for themselves, but I knew last week, the weather for the week and weekend was not looking good. I knew it may be too much for kids to scoop, or for me to want to pay for! We knew of someone selling a snowblower. We went to look at it and bought it! It has been used twice in just a matter of days. I would much rather not have to use one!

Here are some pictures from our front door. The picture of Jeff using the snowblower is on the sidewalk in front of our house. The snow was deep and drifted in that spot on the sidewalk due to a fence and bushes we have in the front of the yard. That is the hardest place to shovel! But, shovel no more!

It looks to be a cold week ahead with a chance of snow later on this week. Let’s hope it isn’t much snow or hopefully none!
