Record snowfall in Nebraska

Almost double previous records.

Grand Island and Hastings set daily snowfall records Tuesday as a major storm rolled through Nebraska.

Grand Island received 8.2 inches of snow, breaking the previous mark of 4.9 inches set in 1978. Hastings recorded 7.1 inches of snow, eclipsing the 4 inches that fell in 1944.

North Platte reported 7 inches of snow, just shy of the record of 7.2 set in 1919.

“We have unofficial reports of 12 inches of snow in Kimball,” said meteorologist Cliff Cole with the National Weather Service office in North Platte.

  1. AL Gore was correct in that our Children will never “see” snow since they will all be house-bound……. and won’t be able to get out-side and “see” the snow…………..

  2. I grew up just 20 miles from Kimball, NE. Back in 1978, it snowed so much that we were sledding off the roof of the house, and we had to dig up to get out of the house… the snow was literally deeper than the door was high. I earned a lot of money that winter scooping snow… after Dad hooked the snowblower up to the tractor and cleared the road into town.

    If this storm broke that record, that’s a lot of snow.
