Finally Friday

Some random thought about spring time to share today. Saw on Facebook a satellite photo of the thousands of bird migrating to Nebraska. Pretty impressive, many in south central Nebraska at Harlan, also along the Platte River, spring must be coming soon.

The calendar flipped from February to March, another sign of spring is on its way. However, don't discount the late winter snow storm that is able to bring activities to a grinding halt. We may see one yet! I could do without it.

It's the Lenten season, seems every town has at least one organization with a weekly fish fry. I won't mention any particular one, just pick one out,  you'll probably bump into friends, neighbors, or relatives. Bon appetite'.

Baseball is underway on all levels. The majors, college, high schools, and even the little leagues are getting the gear out for another season. 

Don't let Easter sneak up on you, it's on April Fools Day. You can tell Easter isn't far off. It reminds me to make sure I get my wife a couple of packages of Peeps! That's the yellow candy with marsh mellow inside. Always a hit with her!

Well, in the words of Alan Jackson, "it's five o'clock somewhere". Have a great weekend!

See you on the radio 3-7, on KZ-100

What's the weather going to be like this winter? Well if you're hoping for mild and warm, you may be disappointed in the weather outlook from Al Dutcher, State Climatologist with UNL. 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…

Flu Is Here

The flu has hit many families, schools, and businesses this winter with a nasty strain that has been deadly at times.  The nastiness that is the flu has even hit many of us here at the old radio ranch.  While there may not be a way to absolutely prevent you from getting flu, the CDC does offer some great tips on how to prevent it.  Good luck and stay healthy!
