Cabin fever is rampant in Nebraska

Here's what's happening in my neck of the woods. The kids still haven't gone back to school since Christmas break because of blizzard conditions, winter storm warnings and 20 below temperatures.

Streets are plowed, but there's nowhere for all the snow to go. Parking lots are filled with snow - good luck parking to get groceries - and should you park, I dare you to tackle pushing a grocery cart to your car.

Most businesses can't afford to pay for bobcats to load snow into dump trucks and carry it away, so...

But daughter Kristin works for a snow removal (and lawn care) company and they are smiling all the way to the bank.

Cabin fever is rampant in Nebraska.


  1. Let me tell you how much I do not miss weather like this. At all. ::shudder::

    I hope you guys get a reprieve soon!

  2. we started back to school on Monday so had two days of classes before being closed down again.
    What will this Monday bring?

  3. Gee, we had 1/2 inch and the closed the schools here on Thursday and Friday. Just the mention of the possibility of snow is enough to shut everything down here in TN. Wonder what we'd do if we actually had an accumulation.

  4. We also had two days of school before this latest storm hit. we finally got out yesterday and today the highway past our farm is open. Yea, We made a quick trip to town for supplies!
