I went to bed last night at 1AM with no snow falling. I woke up this morning at 9:30 to 18″. It is still snowing now, at 1:12 PM.

On the news this morning, they posted the NW Arkansas-area seasonal snow fall records since 1940:
25.8″ in 2009 – 2010
25.0″ in 1977 – 1978
22.5″ in 2002 – 2003
21.2″ in 1947 – 1948
19.5″ in 1959 – 1960
We’ve set a new record. And winter isn’t even over yet.

Obviously a good half of the country is under snow/ice/other shitty weather at the moment. We got about 6+ inches (non-AOL inches!) of snow here, with a little sleet prior to that. Here’s some pictures I took today of what it looks like in our neck of the woods.
Make a little birdhouse in your soul. A frozen little soul in a frozen little birdhouse:
Every now and again, I manage to take a descent picture of myself. Even if it’s 12 degrees outside:
It’s going to be extremely cold the next couple days, so I had to drive to the Husbear’s salon today to let the water drip. The only way I mostly knew a road was there was to keep the truck between the signs and the mailboxes:
Always good instructions:
I think I need to have a sign made that says “KEEP RUBRIGHT”.
Sometimes one finds pretty scenery quite close to home:
And some not so pretty scenery:
Mother Nature be damned! I’m so over crappy weather.
