Wow, what a drive!
We left our house just after 4 am Tuesday and got to North Platte just after 7 pm. When we crossed the border from North to South Dakota, we started seeing the snow along the road and it got worse and worse. The roads were fine, but the snow! Here's a pic from Valentine, Nebraska:
Along the way, there were hundreds of meadowlarks on the shoulders of the highway. I wonder if they got stranded on their way north. We also counted 41 "human snowbirds" in their RVs migrating back north, some of whom were from Saskatchewan. We're safely in Abilene tonight (got here at 6:45 pm), and looking forward to checking out the city before the conference starts tomorrow.
