The bomb cyclone that ripped through Nebraska last week has affected countless lives and Nebraskans are pulling together “Nebraska Strong” for grueling relief efforts that have only just begun. A puddle pooling around hay bales in central Perkins County on Sunday morning is evidence of how minor the storm was here, in comparison.: The extent of some of the damage in eastern parts of the state is apparent, as the bridge on Highway 281 over the Niobrara River, south of the Spencer Dam was washed out after Spencer Dam was compromised on Thursday morning.

Perkins County dodges bullet as much of state suffers

Perkins County and surrounding areas remained mostly unscathed from a “bomb cyclone” that triggered a crippling blizzard in western Nebraska and flooding in the eastern part of the state.

PC track athletes (l-r): Trye Hickey, Kyler Bullock, Irvin Reyes and Alex Patrick, along with the rest of the team, had their first day of outdoor practice on Monday after two weeks of practicing indoors due to cold weather. It was short lived, as the weather will force them back indoors the rest of the week. 

Winter season going out with a bang

Spring is expected to arrive next week with temps in the low 50s, but not before a large farewell statement from its predecessor.
