For many Nebraskans – if not most – the year "1949" conjures up one thing: The Blizzard.
Over the years of this website, we've posted little about the Blizzard of 1949; most recently, we shared a story written by the remarkable Con Marshall, whose ability to remember, research, and write about a wide range of history, sporting events, agricultural topics – and just about anything else – is widely recognized and appreciated.
This posting is simply an update.
First, something new: fans of Nebraska history are already acquainted with History Nebraska; if not, you should be. Here's a link to their recent History Nebraska Blog posting of the Blizzard of 1949 – a truly unforgettable winter. We think you'll enjoy seeing the photos.......and hope you'll also take time to join History Nebraska. It's well worth it!
Then, re-visit Con Marshall's Blizzard story we posted in 2019. Enjoy!
