Frosted Flakes: Mid Winter Edition Part 2

Hey, more snow!

Outside the authors front door at 6:30am

We have pretty decent blizzard conditions here in northeast Nebraska this morning. It has been snowing for awhile and is supposed to continue through the day.

Now, there were a lot of people last week who voiced their dislike of winter last week. This is not your day. Yes, you probably like having the day off but at some point you will have to dig out. I suggest hiring a local youth if you don’t want to do it yourself. Enjoy it folks.

For those of you in central to eastern Nebraska, stay safe. There are more roads being closed as the morning progresses. Do not go out if you don’t need to. Remember, the winds during a storm like this can make thing a lot worse than it seems. A couple inches of snow can become a major problem if the winds pick up, which they are.

Today in Flakes we get into a lot of the Huskers success the past few days, the Super Bowl, and why people dislike smart leaders. I’m going to leave that last one open for your thoughts.
