This week’s snowstorm, despite all its fury, dropped only about 0.05 inches of precipitation in the Omaha region, according to the weather service. That storm could drop an inch or so, Kern said. “It’s still too far to go into detail,” he said. “But it looks like a rough ride Tuesday night and again Wednesday morning. A lot of people will be tempted to travel because of the New Year, but remember to avoid traveling on Tuesday and Wednesday. For people who have long trips, say between Omaha and Lincoln, Rossio said tracking forecast and planning ahead would likely pay off. Cold weather will follow in the storm’s wake, with highs in the 1920s and lows around 10 degrees. There is good news with this storm. It is expected to move out early Thursday, so it should be sunny – cold but no snow – for New Years Eve, including the Omaha fireworks show. .

Two of the hottest teams in MLS prior to the completion of the pandemic open group play in the MLS back tournament sporting Kansas city and Minnesota United played on Sunday evening at 8 PM ET on ESPN wide world of sports complex near Orlando.
Both clubs have started the season 2-0-0 (6 points), with sporting K. C. holding MLS-best goal difference against goals + 6, closely followed Minnesota at plus-5.
The two clubs are part of group D, which can be hard of six groups. The rest of the clubs in group D are the Colorado rapids and real salt lake. Promotion from this group will not be easy.
“One thing we know, we’re playing a very good team,” Minnesota United coach Adrian Heath said recently. “They had a big overhaul of the squad, spent a lot of money. (Alan) Pulido was $ 9 million. With johnny Russell on the one hand, they have threats. We know they will be very motivated. They will play on the front foot”.
Minnesota, who without the protection of an MLS defender, former player UPC IKE Opara for the tournament, made the MLS playoffs for the first time in its three-year history in 2019, while SKC missed for the first time since 2010. But the performances of last year, or even in two games played in early spring, matter little now.
The heat and humidity in the Orlando area may be a factor in this match.
“One thing I think people at home probably don’t realize how hot and humid it is here,” said Heath. “I’ve lived here for six and a half years, so I know that FL. But trust me, you never get used to the 9 PM (and) it 90 degrees and humidity off the charts.”
Kansas city has been training in similar weather, what Manager Peter Vermes says he can help.
“I want to say that the last couple of weeks the temperature and humidity (in Kansas city could) help us a bit. The heat and humidity here was not a shock to us. We are ready,” he said. “I really think everyone’s eager to play.”

Now because we limit travel to grocery stores and food delivery can be few and far between, managing the food we already have is more important than ever. According to a recent study, the average American household disposes almost a third of the food purchased. Consumer Reports has several tips for reducing waste by keeping the food we buy fresher for longer.
Start with a refrigerator: Give room for new food before heading to the store or accepting delivery. Cool air that can circulate throughout the room will make your food the best. For optimal freshness, your refrigerator should be set at 37 degrees and the freezer at 0.
Go through your cupboard to check the “best by” date, and move the oldest food forward. You do not need to consider these dates as “discard” dates. “Best by” means food is probably the most delicious before a certain date, but that doesn’t mean it’s not safe to eat. You should check the food past this date to see if there are any signs of damage. If in doubt, throw it away.
Dry goods in your kitchen will last longer if you store them in airtight packaging. This will also help prevent bacteria and moisture. And when you freeze or cool food, wrap it tightly, then mark it with a date so you are more likely to use it first.
Food experts Consumer Reports say that to keep staples like bread longer, keep them away from the fridge. Bread can become stale faster in the refrigerator than if you store it in a cool, dry place. You can freeze it; wrap it tightly and put it in an airtight container or a resealable bag.
If you don’t think you will use milk before the expiration date, pour a little from the carton, then freeze the rest. It will last up to three months. You can even freeze eggs. So that the egg yolk does not harden and cannot be used, shake a little, then pour it into an airtight container. They will be stored well for about a year in your freezer.
Strawberries will be stored for about a week in the refrigerator if you remove the stems and place them in a single layer in a closed container.
Consumer Reports food experts want to remind you that frozen foods maintain their nutrition, so buying frozen products is a good way to reduce waste. Then use only what you need from the freezer, so you throw less.
