Over 70 Years Ago, Nebraska Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In Its History
Nebraska is known to produce some rather severe winter weather, and we’ve seen our share of terrible storms over the years. But none compare to the winter of 1948-49, when the snow fell for what seemed like forever and the world came to a standstill.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Nebraska did, of course, eventually recover. But the winter of 1948-49 is still remembered as the worst in the state.
