Only in Nebraska


Yesterday we experienced quite the weather anomaly. On the western end of the state, where I'm from, they were having snow. Actually, it was more than that. It was a full-blown blizzard. Now snow is not uncommon in Nebraska during March. We've had more than our share of spring snowstorms.

But...

What
was rather uncommon is that on this end of the state, the far eastern end, where I'm at now, we had tornadoes, not to mention rain, thunder and lightning!

Funny, how one side of the state can have snow while the other side has cyclones! Only in Nebraska...

Great night's work on the novel - I think I'm about to the halfway mark in the editing process. It feels like it's taking forever, but I want to take my time with this and not rush it. And I'm pleasantly surprised at some of the stuff I came up with in the first draft. That's always a good thing.

Let's just hope the snow stays on the other end of good ol' Nebraska. On the other hand, it would give me an excuse to turn the fireplace on and write...

  1. I didn't realize you were in Nebraska! That is one of the few states we haven't applied for work in--too cold! Glad you got some good work done:)

  2. Your weather sounds a little like New England's, where they say if you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes. That's how often it changes!

  6. Your weather is much like ours...UNCERTAIN. Tomorrow we're going out of town to visit our daughters, where they are having SNOW. We planned the trip thinking the weather would be Spring-like, but it has changed for the worse.

    Hope you're enjoying that warm fire, all snuggled up with your manuscript. Blessings!

  7. It was pretty crazy. I don't think I am ready for more snow. I was just getting used to spring.
