Murdock News, April 18, 2018
We got snow again, and there is a prediction of maybe that cold wet stuff again, or so I hear.
I'm putting this photo out here, only for historical reference that we got snow, measurable, plowable snow on April 14, 2018.
For those that drove north to Murdock on Highway 1 or 310th Street heading to church, there was drifting!
Plows went down 310th street on April 15, 2018!!
Can anyone remember that happening before?
There is a lot happening in Elmwood, people are getting ready for spring. The daffodils are blooming, I did rescue some from the snow last week and they are sitting on my dining room table.
Spring Cleanup days is just around the corner, April 21st. The community will be going block to block cleaning up corners and ditches that the winter has left debris or trash. It's kinda like the highway cleanup, but it's on your block.
Ladies Golf Group at Grandpas Woods, Elmwood
Speaking of getting outside a ladies golf club is starting at Grandpas Woods, it's not a league, just a time to get together with the ladies and golf. Maybe have a drink afterward.
We meet on Monday nights through the summer at 5:30 for 9 holes of golf.
Judy Stroy, Angie Friesell and Deb Gilbert golfing April 12,(Yes, this year, BEFORE the snow, remember we had a 80F day)
Anyone who would like to golf or learn to golf, come join us for a fun, relaxing night out with the girls!
This is not a league, just come when you can.

Work to Begin on N-63 Alvo North Realignment
March 15, 2018 (Lincoln, Neb.) — Weather permitting, work is scheduled to continue the week of March 19 on N-63, between Alvo and I-80, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
Knife River, LLC of Sioux City, Iowa has the $11,758,926 contract. Work will include realignment of N‑63, culverts and box culverts, and wetland mitigation. This will be the second of two phases of work.
During this phase, N-63 will be closed to traffic from Reference Post 4+20 (Alvo) to Reference Post 9+68 (Church Road). A marked detour will be in place along I-80 to N-66 to N-50 to US-34 for southbound traffic and along US-34 to N-50 to N-66 to I-80 for northbound traffic. This portion of the project is anticipated to be completed in November 2018.
The Department’s project manager is Jesse De Los Santos of Lincoln. Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously through work zones and along detours.
