    Same scenario though. Ground was still frozen and rapid snowmelt totally fucked everything up. Amount of livestock dying in my area is unreal though

    We shut the power off after we figured we were losing the battle pumping. Unfortunately an older guy that lives by him had his house burn on top of getting flooded

    What kind of temperature jump are we talking about that caused the snow to melt before the ground could thaw? Also I'm geographically impaired, what parts of Nebraska is this happening in?

    Sounds and looks horrible

    We had a stretch of a month of below freezing temps. Lots of places had 6+ inches of snow on the ground. All that disappeared in about 24 hours. 1-3 inches of rain did most of it. It's about all of Central Nebraska clear east to where everything dumps into the big rivers.

    Once in a lifetime type of shit.

    We had some abnormally high snowfall this winter - upwards of 50"+ throughout most of the state. And the frigid cold weather stuck around a lot longer than normal this year. Then this week the temps jumped up to the 50's and there was a fairly large rainfall that accompanied it. This caused all shit to break loose. Most of the areas affected are central and northeastern parts of the state.

    Oh and there's a blizzard that dropped over a foot of snow and had hurricane winds on the western end of the state.

    Nebraska was fucking wild this week.

    Rain on top of frozen soil = complete runoff with no absorption. Compounded by that runoff going into frozen rivers, so ice jams caused even more flooding.

    I also had to take up Korean yard shitting to conserve water.

    My town was fortunate unless you lived near the river.

    My buddy was able to go back out last night and luckily his house had not gone swimming yet. The bank is now about 3-4 feet from his back windows.

    This seems thread worthy especially if any posters directly impacted lack flood insurance

    I'm guessing a huge majority of the state doesn't have flood insurance since something like this has never really happened in anyone's lifetime

    Don't want to go into too many specifics but my Dad works there now. Old man's got his work cut out for him but they'll be fine I'm sure. People impacted seem to be taking it pretty well actually. Like, this is a shit sandwich but as long as people are ok we'll deal.

    They'll get by. Happened to my hometown a few years ago. Areas flooded that were not considered a floodplain thus no one had flood insurance. They were able to rebuild. Absolutely horrible situation.

    Thanks brother. The people I really feel for are people who are in the swing of calving. Especially if they're out to pasture. Cattlemen relatives haven't really started that yet so they're alright but there's a bunch of people who are having a really tough time getting to their calves and/or like berg, calves are dying like crazy. That's devastating.

    Wife and I are not heading to Lyons tonight, but will try to make it up north tomorrow to check on her parents. Sounds like everything around the Fremont area is totally fucked, which is the way we take to West Point. Her brother lives in Sutton and got hammered yesterday by snow.

    Have some family friends that have a house on Woodcliff Lake and they were evacuated at around 3am yesterday. Then there was a flood emergency declared there last night so I think they are probably in for some shit. This just sucks.
