Winter Doesn’t Want to Leave; Sandhills Blasted Again By “Bomb Cyclone” Number 2

Residents in the Sandhills and northern Nebraska were warned to be prepared for another blast of snow heading our way starting on Wednesday, April 10th. Fortunately, the 24” to 30” predicted snowfall did not get to our area. It was reported that Ainsworth had around seven inches of snow, while parts of Valentine had up to sixteen inches. The storm was accompanied by strong winds up to 50+ miles per hour with snow, ice and rain. There was “thundersnow” early Thursday morning reported in Nebraska. On Wednesday, temperatures ranged from 80 degrees to 20 degrees throughout the state of Nebraska.

Wednesday morning, April 10th, school districts in Ainsworth, Bassett, Springview, Stuart and West Holt began cancelling school for the afternoon which led to no school on Thursday or Friday, April 11th or 12th due to the inclement weather.
