‘Snowmageddon’ done social media style
Well, the weather was at it again. The day before some groundhog named Phil is supposed to determine our seasonal fate, yet another bad winter storm hit Northwest Arkansas. The snow totals are as little as one inch near Fort Smith and as much as about 10 inches in northwest Benton County. The problem is, ice fell before the snow-making the roads even more treacherous. Schools and many businesses closed. Flights to and from many area airports were canceled.
As is the norm for just about any major (and minor) event, social media was alive with chatter about the storm. The hashtag #nwasnow11 was used on Twitter and the Fayetteville Flyer ran a running accumulation of the tweets.
I wanted photos to share with our readers so I asked my Facebook friends for some help. The following photos are some of what they shared.
