I saw that and it made me smile. A nice little shout out and it was cool to see the Woodmen and First National buildings.

OMAHA'S A HILLY CITY!! WOW!! LOL

I always had a stereotypical view of Omaha--based on flying over Nebraska on my way to California in 2001--that the city would be as flat as much of the state, but I am proven wrong. It kind of reminds me of the Quad Cities area (Davenport, Iowa--Rock Island, Illinois--Moline and East Moline, Illinois), where I am from. Now I want to visit the damn place...lol. HILLS GIVE CITIES CHARACTER!!

************************************************** ***
In 1972 I was driving a beef delivery truck out of a beef packinghouse in York, Nebraska. On Tuesday and Thursday my usual route was to the West. Early one December morning we had a freezing rain that left the roads West of York closed but the East bound highways were still open. So since my route could not be delivered I went as second seat to the driver handling the Omaha route that day. We had finished a couple stops in Lincoln and were headed to Omaha when the ice storm caught up with us. By the time we made it to the stop in Omaha there was a half inch or so of solid ice on the streets. The stop in Omaha was at the top of a hill where the main street running by it had been sanded. The driver managed to back the truck in (a straight truck with a 24 foot box) to the dock with no problem. On my side of the truck it was flat for about ten feet and then it was like a sled run down the hill for a block. When I stepped out of the truck I slid right off of the flat spot to the slope. I managed to keep my balance but I slid all the way to the bottom of the hill. I was still standing at the bottom but probably going twenty to thirty mph when I hit the curb along the sidewalk. I rolled out into the middle of the street but luckily there was no car or truck coming. It was a solid sheet of ice and by the time I walked around the block and up the hill back to the truck the other driver was almost finished unloading. Everybody was still laughing when I made it back to the truck. Of course the other driver had to tell everybody back at the plant about how far I would go to get out of unloading a truck. I don't know if I gained any character from that hill but it was a ride I will never forget.

Yeah, I can admit that hills are good, so long as there isn't any snow nor ice outside, which we have plenty of (snow) at this time...lol.

I wonder if anyone has any pictures of Omaha from the 60's, 70's and 80's?
