We measured 13.5 inches at a level spot in our back yard here in Lincoln. Pretty much done, maybe some flurries left. But wind is now picking up. Had to go out to snowblow 3 times and will do a 4th tomorrow morning.
I got caught in that 1949 storm with my mom and dad when I was 3 1/2 years old. Our car got stuck just across the bridge into Nebraska from Yankton. We had to try to walk across the combination bridge back to Yankton in the storm with dad carrying me. Mom said we'd have never made it, but the only car they'd seen for an hour picked us up.
That would have made more sense for us here in Salina. When I ran at 3:30 pm today, my son's school would have been out for almost an hour. It had been finished raining for about 2 hours, and snow finally started coming down about 7 minutes into the run. I came across zero ice on any surface that I ran on. There might be a half inch on the ground now. Easily could have had a game today as scheduled.Lincoln was officially at 13 inches as of 6PM -- and it's continued to snow since then (still is as of midnight).
1/25/2021 will rank as the 2nd most snow ever recorded in one day in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Looks like everything that was cancelled today will be cancelled again tomorrow.
That's incredible for anywhere -- for Central NC, that's mindblowing.
