31 right now. It is supposed to get down into the 20's tonite, so if some of this melts off it will be treacherous tomorrow. My husband had a problem getting the truck out of the driveway but went on to work - said there are several semis that have jack-knifed around town.

Again, this is VERY unusual...but I'd give anything for some really tall snowboots right now!

That's one thing I would probably miss if I lived in NW Arkansas full-time....the early springs we have here. I've already got Saucer Magnolias and daffodils and spireas blooming, the forsythias are nearly gone by, and almost everything else is budding out and starting to grow! Of course, when high summer comes, I'll be wishing for the (relative) coolness and lower humidity of the Ozarks! Well, you can't have everything. The astounding beauty makes up for the colder weather, in my book.

We're getting the first daffodils and the forsythia is leafing and budding, but no explosions of color just yet...I'm impatiently waiting! At least this snow came at the right time, not like last year when we had that freeze that set everything back and made for a lousy spring show (but very long period of great weather, which was SO nice!).

Default the Village

I live in Hot Springs Village and had 2" of snow on my deck this morning. Unusual for March, but we have had snow in the past. In the winters of 1999 and 2000 (the ice storm) I had as much as a foot accumulated on my patio table, and we used to have a few inches every winter until a couple of years ago. This is the first real amount in about three years for my part of the Village. Sun is out, so it won't last long, but it sure is pretty now.

I hope they don't miss your prediction as badly as ours...up side is that it is melting fast...down side is that it is supposed to re-freeze tonite and get down to 21. That could make things ugly for tomorrow. Those of us that work from home don't really care, though, except that the firewood is getting low...

We have like 13-14 inches and we're about 7 miles north of downtown Russellville.

Really nice to wake up to, especially since I didn't have classes at Tech today, haha. I hate to hope for a refreeze, but it'd be nice to have another day to sit on the old arse.

They came out with the official reading of 14" on E. Parkway. Babe, that's snow...

Under, I hope you get your wish! Too bad some of this didn't spread down Little Rock way - everything was open. I hated that since I work via remote and I'm under their work plan...

My parents drove from Rogers to McCrory today -- left around 1 pm, by which time it was all pretty much gone from the ground up there. Stopped in Russellville to exchange some stuff with my sister, and marveled at all the white stuff that was still around there. There apparently was a bit on the ground around Augusta, but not much in McCrory by the time they got there at 5:30.
