Icing heavily in Russellville now - temps dropping. 4:18 a.m. Doesn't look so good for the home team. We've stayed in a pocket of just rain for the past day but the ice looks like it is almost stalling out over us. Ugh. Just ugh.

wow, you can look at it this way: we are all stuck inside so we have no excuse for not getting the Christmas gifts wrapped, the house cleaned and some baking done, just so you guys don't lose your power. Ours has been mostly snow. I don't think it is falling right now, but I am going to try and get the paper in a few minutes, then I will know for sure.

My daughter said, one of her daughters went to Walmart at 5am yesterday and it was packed. Then our daughter went to $ General, just near here about 8am, same story...I did all the shopping I needed to do on Tuesday, thank goodness. if we run out of something, oh well!!!!

It appears we have (so far) dodged the bullet here in west LR. It rained all night but no icing of the trees or power lines. About 8 this AM sleet came and covered the ground and streets but the streets were warm enough it turned to slush but will turn to ice tonight. It ain't over yet 2:20 PM and I just looked at the live radar and everything has moved east of us. We are in the clear except for the streets freezing tonight, but with tomorrow being Saturday, maybe the traffic will be light.

You guys were lucky.

We got close to a foot of snow, *after* freezing rain Thursday. There ain't nothing moving. The wife has been out chipping ice off her SUV all day today, and the lockout hubs on my truck are froze, so no 4WD.

At least the power stayed on.

They shut down U.S. 63 because of a collection of jackknifed semis.

All of my trees are history. Two HUGE Hackberry's. One Dogwood and a Crepe Myrtle. My garage and backyard are covered with large limbs. Our power was out all day Friday. I have enough work with the chainsaw to keep me busy til the fall of next year.

My nephew who lives at Ink had to cut a tree out of his drive before he could get out to go for more gas for his generator.

I cannot believe how much snow/ice is still on the roads..more than 24 hrs after the last snow fell! I realize that Arkansas doesn't get as much snow as the Northern states, so they typically wont spend as much on clean up and ice melting solutions, but what happens when we get storms this big? I was on the streets for roughly 45 minutes today and saw a total of one truck out treating the roads. Even the main roads are still nearly completely covered, and this is in Bentonville where we didn't even see much ice.

wow,that surprises me: yes, you are right, we can't expect to have the same equipment that you get in the upper Midwest and other areas with heavy snow, but here in Bella Vista, even our little street in forn to our house, in the middle of nowhere had snow removal today.

That is interesting. I live along Highway 12, 1/2 mile from XNA and the road was covered. I'm not sure if they pretreated the roads here, but I saw on that news that Springdale did not. Eh, oh well. At least it's a weekend so there will be less people on the roads, but I just hope that they do extra work on Sunday, because Monday could be tough driving.

They wait for it to melt. Sometimes it takes a while.
