Below please find a few pictures taken of snowdrifts from the recent blizzard which impacted the region. The first two of these pictures were taken at the Hastings National Weather Service office and depict a large drift over 6 feet high between a satellite dish and a temperature sensor. The bottom picture is from Heartwell where our Electronic Systems Analyst was briefly stranded. In the middle of the snow drift pictures are a couple taken by one of our off duty meteorologists who lives in a rural setting 3 miles north of Hastings.  In the fourth to last photo, you’ll note an iconic Nebraska figure on top of the drift.  Please note that the final 2 images depict how the fierce winds shaped the snow in waves in Heartwell,  Nebraska.
