Sugar Creek has way overflowed. Here’s video.

Highway 94 bridge over Sugar Creek:

And Highway 72 bridge over Sugar Creek:

The first bridge on Sugar Creek Road off of Highway 72 is washed out:

Update: I noticed that the videos aren’t playing on Firefox. Apparently there’s some bug with Firefox playing .mov files using the HTML5 <video> tag.

Updated 2011.09.25: Moved videos to YouTube.

A real snow job.

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.


It’s now an A-frame birdhouse. (click to embiggen)


My poor Jeep. (click to embiggen)

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.


There’s a bench under that tree. Somewhere. (click to embiggen)

I’m so ready for Spring.

Until next time...

Snowzilla 2011

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.

Until next time...
