When we lived in Bentonville, we went through the big ice storm some folks were out of electricity for more than a week. The following year was the big snow storm where some spots got two feet of snow. While we do get some winter storms, these two events were quite rare for Northwest Arkansas.
Then, two years of basically nothing. Sure, we had some small snows but nothing to really write home about (or blog about). Then this week, we had a pretty good cold front come through and while it means I’m probably home bound for at least four days, it’s so pretty to look at and it’s our dogs’ first big snow. It’s our first significant winter storm in our new home so it’s kinda fun!
Some spots of Northwest Arkansas got up to 12 inches, we got about 6 inches or so. There was also a good amount of ice that came down before the snow. Not a big deal for the Northeast part of the United States, but for these parts it’s a big deal! It’s not supposed to get out of the 20s until middle of next week so there’s not a lot of expectation for melting.
As a side note, I also got a brand new camera-the first time since 2006. I need it for my business and for my blog. So I have a lot of photos to share!
