A Massive Storm Blanketed Nebraska In Snow In 1997 And It Will Never Be Forgotten

If you’ve been in Nebraska for a while, you’ll no doubt remember the massive, destructive snowstorm of 1997. It’s been more than 20 years since this insane storm that some scholars called a “200-year storm,” meaning that an event of this magnitude and these circumstances only comes around once every two centuries. Several states were affected by the storm, but Nebraska is said to have received the most severe damage.
