Omaha Union Station

I had a little more time to sightsee yesterday. Just up the road from my hotel is The Durham Museum. Even if you’re not a train and railroad buff, which I’m not, the museum still proves interesting. And it’s not just an homage to Omaha’s part in the great interconnectedness of 19th and 20th century America, but also to trains …


Weekly Recap – September 20th, 2013

I had a day off! Well, most of it anyway. More than I’ve had in three weeks and the reason for the tardiness of this post. So what did I do with the time? A colleague mentioned the Strategic Air and Space Museum about thirty minutes out of town in Ashfield. The day was beautiful and the museum, a welcome …

Weekly Recap – September 13th, 2013

Friday the 13th has arrived. My bad luck came early as I had to extend my Omaha workcation another week, so now I won’t be home until the 24th… assuming I’m not extended again. I was hoping my wife could come out, but she received a last minute job opportunity. At least the weather is nice today. On the writing …

Omaha on a Saturday Morning

This is the view from my hotel room on a Saturday Morning. We’re looking North-Eastish here, with downtown Omaha beginning on your left sweeping right towards Iowa just across the bridge. The nice grassy area in front is part of the ConAgra headquarters. My apologies for the poor panorama. I haven’t quite nailed that feature on my phone yet… Fingers …

Weekly Recap – September 6th, 2013

Coming in just a little late, but coming in nonetheless! Omaha weather has been pleasant for the most part, but is quickly heating up again. We’ll see where next week takes us. I’ve been to quite a few restaurants and watering holes in the Old Market area. No one seems to have Thousand Island dressing. Not my condiment of choice, but …

Weekly Recap – August 30th, 2013

Next week begins the final phase of my Omaha tour of duty. I’m flying out on Monday (Labor Day, ironic, eh?) and will be stationed there for two weeks, finishing what we’ve started. As I drove in to the office this morning and thought about all the hardships we face with work and writing and whatever else life throws at …

Weekly Recap – August 23rd, 2013

Here I am in Omaha, busy working and mingling. Not much to say this week, both because not much has happened that would be of interest to you and there’s not much time to talk. I hope to come out of this weekend’s work wormhole unscathed. At least I can enjoy a good steak and beer while I’m here. Hope you all …

Weekly Recap – August 16th, 2013

Wow. It’s been over a month since my last Weekly Recap, so I guess that would make this post my first Monthly Recap. Lots has happened. First and foremost, a close friend that some of us know through blogging recently lost his father. I don’t want to name him out of respect, but his week has definitely been a heavy …

doomsday, NE…

As I recuperate from my travels and stew over my next story, I thought I’d upload some photos I snapped in Omaha (not the greatest quality since I used my cell phone). The town has a very interesting feel. During the weekdays, it was as if everyone stayed inside to avoid certain death. The streets were practically empty. Folks would …
