snow drifts in nebraska

The thing we are still getting used to in Nebraksa is the wind. It is amazing. Even in the summer it is impressive how windy it can get with no buildings or hills or mountains to block it. This winter the wind has given us three blizzards.

Blizzards move the snow around so some areas are left without a whole lot of snow. But wherever the snow is collecting it can make some impressive drifts. We drove down this road today, a few blocks from our house, and had to get out to take some pictures. I'm only in there for perspective but based on the fact that I am 5' 10'', those are some large snow piles.

Ha! It's true. I feel so exposed right now. But yes, I am wearing my boots and skinny jeans! And truth be told, I LOVE SKINNY JEANS. And I am not kidding. I'll have to explain this one, because I don't actually think I've gone crazy...

I'll write more on this topic soon...
