True to an extent. I do hear this in Nebraska though because people will claim that those from western NE (about North Platte on west) aren't that friendly compared to eastern Nebraska folks

9 months above 50

All months 35 and above

28 inches of rain
26 inches of snow

Where would that be? I live about an hour west of Omaha (in Butler County) and to me the terrain looks the same from about West Omaha until you get near Columbus. On 1-80 i'd say it looks the same until you get past Seward when it all flattens out. However its still mostly farming.

I80 is not a good place to judge Nebraska's geography. There is a sampling bias which skews the results towards a river valley terrain almost entirely.

The terrain does vary some until you hit the sandhills. And ive driven to columbus many times from Omaha. It is about an hour and a half with a few stops on the way. Until you reach it, there are big rolling hills, small rolling hills, river valleys and the like in the eastern part of the state.

The Midwest and West overlap as soon as yer west of the Missouri river. I consider North Dakota down to Kansas the Midwest AND West. They're the transition from the wooded eastern half of the country to the more arid and rugged western half.

Well. I80 Is the problem. Just north and northwest of GI is the start of a loess and sandhills region.
