If you've been following the news recently, we've got a chance for a decent amount of ice. They are predicting roughly 1/2 inch of ice for NWA which could definitely down some tree limbs and make driving very tough. Be careful!

Tim Ernst said on his journal (currentjournal) that his driveway was solid ice by 8:15 this morning.

Of course, he is at a higher elevation, so the lower ones may not have so much or any, I don't know. Tim is on Cave Mountain in the Ponca area.

It's 10:45 am in Mena and all we have is rain with a temperature of 32.9*. The altitude at our house is about 1100 ft.

Good luck, DC; here we are in good shape, so far. We have had a little ice and sleet off and on, but so far nothing is sticking. I am sure the roads are slick though. It started just before 9:30am. I take it back, it is sticking, not on the street yet, but on the grass. It is just starting to show. Everyone be careful. Apparently, according to the news, Ft Smith and south will get more ice than us. The most important thing is: everyone is safe and by Monday, we can get out. We have an early Tues morning flight.

Thanks, Nita.

I've been checking the weather webcams. Har-Ber High School looks to be completely iced over. Huntsville is the same. But up by Garfield everything still looks passable. Looks like sleet and rain in Pea Ridge. It's hard to tell about Eureka Springs. So we'll see.

5 PM and it just started raining here in west LR with the temp @ 30 as it has been most of the afternoon. Hopefully the ground/streets are still warm enough it will not freeze on them tonight.

Oh how I hated those ice storms. A friend in Fayetteville told me WalMart is insane, and it's like the Zombie Apocalypse in there. Stay safe and warm.

Worst ice storm I was in was in south Arkansas in 93 (I think) was without power for 3 weeks. I remember the pine tree limbs breaking sounding like shotguns going off all night.
