Spring Blizzard Chase: April 10, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mike U @ 2:59 pm

I’ve made a very impromptu decision to drive to North Platte, NE to be a part of what looks like an amazing Spring snow storm across much of western Nebraska.  I will arrive in North Platte about 9pm or so, and plan to be there through Friday.  The storm will be at its height tomorrow (Thursday 10th).  Given it’s spring time and temps not being too far below 32F, major highways should be cleared by late Friday, allowing me to get back to Dodge in time for "back to work" Saturday.  This looks too good to pass up, and I love an opportunity to witness heavy snow and wind (and possibly thundersnow!).  I’ll provide fairly frequent updates with snow amounts around North Platte, as I’ll be staying at one of the hotels along I-80.
