The massive winter storm that hammered the Plains this past weekend brought
an inch of ice or more to a large chunk of Nebraska, and power still hasn't been
restored in some spots. Utility crews from South Dakota and Iowa have been
brought into help their counterparts in Nebraska, but some locations may not see
power restored for many more days. That's because the ice storm did so much
damage to Nebraska's rural electric infrastructure. According to a press release
from the Iowa Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives, which has sent crews
to Nebraska, the storm did major damage to the state's electricity grid from
"Lexington north to Broken Bow, extending northeast through Neligh and Norfolk,
south through Aurora, and down to the Kansas border."
