February 2, 2016, a blizzard roared into and settled down for a 24 hour snowy stay in central and southwest Nebraska. Don Brockmeier’s photos of the aftermath of this weather event portray the beauty of snow on the prairie, and the danger and the work involved in moving it away from roads and roofs. Estimates were between 15 and 21 inches and 50-60 mph gusts of wind. See the mounds and imagine the snow and ice packed roads in the aftermath.
I cooked oxtail soup and read a Canadian author, Louise Penney’s mystery.
