It started yesterday mid-morning. And it just now stopped around 1pm.

I had to venture into Bentonville to make sure both the studio and the salon heat were on and the waterlines were all okay. It’s going to be 1°F tonight.

Update: On the news tonight, Pea Ridge was reported as having the most precipitation received for the area. At 12″!

Until next time...
