    When the USPS closes can they tear that building down and put up a parking lot?

    Not when you run a own a video game store and you send and receive games through First Class mail all the time.

    I can't wait for the PBA to open up. I just hope my family gets to upgrade its seats.

    It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.

    I love the coal train running just to the east of PNB.

    Other than farming, nothing screams Nebraska to me more than those mile-long Union Pacific coal trains, hauling fossil fuels out of Wyoming's Powder River Basin back east. Wyoming produces 40% of the coal in the United States, and nearly all of it comes streaking back across the plains of my favorite state.

    Having grown up in Alliance I agree, except there it was the BN. When I lived in CO and OR people would comment on how long a certain train may be and I would laugh, you aint seen nothin!

    Same goes for Oregonians complaining about snow or "hail."

    Hail: (noun) 1. Interchangeable with the term "sleet" in the Pacific Northwest. 2. Elsewhere; frozen chunks of ice the size of tennis balls. Eg. Bob wondered why his car had no dents despite the weatherman's prediction of hail. Bob is a Nebraskan living in Oregon.

    Haha, so true, when I lived there my worked closed for 3 days, I looked out my window and there was just a dusting of snow. Turned out to be that storm back in '08 that shut down the whole PNW around Christmas.

    Unfortunately, those tracks there belong to Burlington Northern.

    I also like how both stadiums are being worked on at the same time.
