Blizzard Day in Omaha

Every time someone hears I'm from Nebraska they ask about the cold and snow - followed by corn, cows, "do you have a Gap" and "how long before you get electricity and indoor plumbing". As I've documented here and elsewhere Omaha is a high tech thriving economy. Although I live within a few hundred feet of a corn field, I also live within a few miles of excellent shopping, theatre, music and the arts. Still, it actually does get cold and snowy in Nebraska. We are in the middle of a blizzard today.

9:00 a.m.

Here's what it looked like outside my office door at 9:00 this morning.

11:00 a.m.

And here's the progress after about 2 hours.

I'll post another update when it gets deeper. :)

Charlie Griefer's Gravatar Are these really the types of pics you want to be posting while trying to lure people to Omaha to work at CFWebtools? :D

Actually, having grown up in NJ, I do miss the snow. Not driving in it... but I wish my kids had more opportunities to see it and play in it.

James Morrow's Gravatar Nothing says fun like six inches of fresh snow, I guess. I'd be down with it, but the wife... less so.

California girls don't like the cold much, I've found.

Jason's Gravatar There's something to be said for having four seasons like they teach in school. One of my favorite things is listening to the sound of it snowing (sounds are muffled, even near busy streets)

JC's Gravatar Looks about the same as it did here in Indiana. Hope you guys are keeping warm there. :)
