Let it snow

The National Weather Service is talking snow for KZ Country. It's about time! This winter we haven't gotten one of those storms where the snow starts off and becomes vicious with northeast winds whipping it around. This may be our "opportunity".

Here's a few thoughts: 
for the home, make sure you've got enough food on hand, in case you have to hunker down, keep the shovel and salt ready for digging out; got pets?, keep them safe, keep yourself safe, know where your children are, stay warm...this will last only a couple of days;

for work, make sure your you've got some food with you, in case you get stuck, have a blanket in your car, take any medicines you need with you (in case you wind up staying an'extra long time, take it in stride;

for driving, make sure you've got enough gas, you've got a blanket, shovel, scraper in your vehicle.

That's not a complete list, but it should help you get started.

Stay tuned to KZ-100 for the latest weather forecast, road reports and any closing or late starts for schools. You can also find this information on our website mycentralnebraska.com.

Farmers, businessmen and others interested in what we'll see this winter came to Dutcher's presentation at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. 
Al started out his presentation by reviewing how the weather has been so far this fall and winter, and compared it to last year. This year’s La Nina event is much stronger than last year and expected to last longer.
Many people have commented on the recent stretch of dry weather we've been seeing in our region of Nebraska as of late, but Dutcher explained we received almost all of our fall precipitation during the month of October. 
Al said the La Nina pattern will keep dry conditions south of Nebraska, which will continue to expand the  drought in those areas. 
Dutcher says when looking at the La Nina event that we are currently experie…
