Road Trip 2011 – Day 40 – Omaha, Nebraska

From St. Louis we headed a little farther West into Omaha, NE.  I don’t know why I was so set on visiting Omaha, I just knew I really wanted to.  Although I am extremely terrified of encountering a tornado, I just wanted to see what the area would be like.  I actually really liked it.  A lot.  I’m not big on overcast skies, but I love a stormy sky.  And it was stormy skies the whole time we were there.  And windy.  And there was a nice chill in the air.  I also loved our couchsurfing host’s house, Matt.  We drove around a bit downtown, got a car wash and walked around the local artist village called Hot Shops.

I wish we could have spent a little more time in the area, and we actually almost did stay another night, but we were actually lucky to leave when we did since the Missouri river was flooding.  A lot of the roads were actually being closed right as we were leaving the area.  One time I got off an exit for some gas and the road was closed to get back on due to flash floods.  Scarry!

Our rating of Omaha compared to Charlotte.  Charlotte being a 0, +3 being definite contender for our new city…
