I caught a Pilger once on a live shrimp.  But it was short.  I threw it back to get bigger.

lol

Happy Anniversary Nebraska!

Well, it's the first day of May tomorrow and I heard on the weather report tonight that Hitchcock County in southwest NEBRASKA is under a BLIZZARD WARNING!   They are expecting over 14" of snow and high winds along with it, but up here in the northeast corner of the state, we should only be getting 1" to 6."   It will be sunny & 70 degrees on Tuesday, so like I've mentioned before, IT'S NOT TOO BAD!  :rolleyes:   Heck, we were just beginning to find the first nice morels last week.  Might have to get the snowblower out to find them this week. :shrug:

This brand new video from NEBRASKA GAME &. PARKS shows some living history reenactors at Fort Atkinson......just about 90 miles south of me.  Some of you may remember me yammering about it in previous threads. :shrug:

Good one MM.  Too thin to plow and too thick to drink.

Yeah, it's definitely been the monsoon season here in Nebraska this May.....it's been raining every day for the past couple of weeks.   This is normally the time of year when we get our most rainfall, but not usually this much at one stretch. ???   According to the prognosticators, we were somewhat below 'normal' for soil moisture before this all started, but as you can see in Tony's video, that is no longer the case.  If you get lemons, it's time to make lemonade. ;)

Oh, that'll happen alright.....usually by mid-July, when we need it most, you couldn't buy a drop. >:(

You probably saw that center-pivot irrigation system on standby in your video.....they get a workout during those dry times!  :rolleyes:

One (of many) subject of American history that was sadly covered in my education was the Dust Bowl.  I was well into adulthood when I actually dug for the whole story.  I felt shorted that it was not better covered.

A really good book on the people and 'heart-of-the-dust-bowl' areas in the panhandles of Texas & Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and southeastern Colorado is entitled THE WORST HARD TIME by Timothy Egan.  If you'd like to read what it was like for the people that stayed in it for the duration, rather than hitting Route 66 for picking jobs in California.  It made THE GRAPES OF WRATH look like a family vacation by comparison. :-\
