Arkansas Snow 1-9-2011

    Arkansas is not known as a snow location. Usually when we get the winter weather it ends up to be mostly an ice/freezing rain event.This year we got snow and lots of it.

    The weatherman forecast 2-4 inches the most in spotted location, mainly in the mountainous areas. Well, they missed it!

    I went outside to measure last night around 8 pm and we had 8 inches at that time and still snowing. This morning the Local Weather has updated State totals in this area to around 8-10 inches of snow.

    I am going to show some pics here from Arkansas in this Thread. Hopefully others will show theirs as well.

    Beside Front Porch Steps-the blooming pear trees and the middle bush is a Rose Barberry Shrub.

    Front Yard through window-See my 7-sisters rose bush! It is 3 years old now. Looks better when it has growth on it. Makes for an awesome display when covered with all the small rose heads all over it.

      I didn't know AK had so much snow! Toronto had its biggest snowfall for this season last weekend. The forecast said 5 cm, but the actual amount was 15cm. My small dog was almost buried in the snow. I have more snow photos in my hub - Toronto Rare Weather Photos. smile

        You have another huge mess coming your way. We are under blizzard warnings here in Michigan. 2-1-2011. Might get up to 21 inches of snow today. It's windy as hell, and looks really nasty outside.

          LOL, the winter storm warning has ended today. We got some snowfalls last night, but nothing to call home about.

          Even the Toronto Inner Harbor has not been completely frozen yet. smile

    Beautiful, Michael! We got a few flakes, along with freezing rain. Our trees are encased in ice.

      I love that swing. It is under a shade and wonderful in the spring, especially summertime.
      I may make a hub with these photos. Good idea.
