There has been some dusting that didn't even accumulate a half inch, I call that insignificant. Can't speak for Bentonville, don't live there but how much worse could it be 10 miles away? I'm glad, I hate snow! and there is no comparison between this year to last year so far, check out the almanac. Again, I'm very happy - I hate cold!

Those only happen every other Thursday around 2pm.

LOL, I'll never understand it when people say things like this.

OP is coming from central Illinois, which is one of the most tornado prone regions in the entire nation. As such, they’re likely used to dealing with that type of threat.

While the Ozarks aren't the absolute most tornado-prone area, that's among the most dangerous type of weather event to be mindful of, I suppose. Flooding is more common though. Ice storms at least every few years.
Arkansas is no weather heaven but could be worse.
Just because someone mentions the word "tornado" doesn't mean they're Chicken Little, looking up at the sky all the time.

We just finished our lunch and I'm savoring the last sip of my wine while staring out at the 2 - 3 ft snowdrift in front of the garage.
But it's ok, it's part of the deal living here. And so is the cold! But what I can tell you is that being cold or not cold is .......relative to YOU! If you are cold... it's cold. And vice versa for the heat. The humidity here makes the cold so much colder.
Here is why we are hurrying to get to NWA/BV
Here Tuesday, low -24F
BV low 13F
Here Wednesday, hi -13F
lo -26F
BV. hi 30F
lo 22F
Here Thursday. hi 2F
lo 1F
BV. hi 47
lo 38F

So my data says I am cold and you folks are not! Lol
And to further add to our pain, while pecking this out, the Nat. Weather Service has just stated that tomorrow, Illinois very well may be the coldest place on Earth!
This is just one of the reasons that we are looking forward to relocating to NWA!

Oh no, I wouldn't want to live in those temps either, so I can understand you are looking for a milder climate.

You will love our weather and by March is should be warming up nicely. Our foster daughter is meeting us for our cruise next Wednesday. She is flying from Or and is going through Chicago; she is worried sick that the weather may delay she flight from O'hare to San Juan. We are not worried at all about flying from here to Sa Juan. We know it could happen but not likely.

It's amazing how there are so many historic buildings and old homestead cabins still standing after 100+ years with all the tornadoes swirling around.

I hope her flight goes as planned with no issues and you all have a great time!
Enjoy!

Depends on what part of the country you're comparing it to. Much more tornado prone than parts of the western U.S.
