I used to live in Nebraska. That sounds about as exciting as living in Iowa or Kansas, In know. But it’s not as bad as you might think. Most people think of Nebraska as flat and only full of corn. And that’s not far off. There are for sure a lot of corn fields. But where I lived — Omaha — isn’t flat at all. It’s actually quite hilly and has some nice features. For instance, the Henry Doorly Zoo is fabulous. It’s really quite pretty to walk through. There is also Offut Air Force Base near Omaha. Visiting there caused me to dream of flying jets in the military! Another thing that, for me, was notable about Omaha/Nebraska was tornadoes. There sure seemed to be a lot of them there! The most memorable for me was the one that hit Omaha on May 6, 1975. I’m not sure I’d like to live in Omaha ever again, but it might be nice to go back to visit and see all the things I remember from my childhood.
