Nebraska has been hard hit by snowstorms this winter season, but climatologists say all that white stuff could amount to some good eventually.
Recent storms have dumped more than two feet of snow in some areas of the state.
But climatologists say more snow means more water once it melts and that could help ease the state's drought concerns.
Mark Svoboda with the National Drought Mitigation Center says that's good news for the tourism and agriculture industries.
Svoboda says in past years, water sources ran dry which resulted
in higher irrigation costs and decreased crop production.
The state lost nearly $1 billion in the worst years.
