You have to see it to believe it

By: 9 February 2011 2 Comments

You’ve already seen Ethan Noble’s story about the snow in Central Arkansas and Lana F. Hutchins Flowers’ story about the effect Wednesday’s record-breaking snow had on Northwest Arkansas.

Now, you’ll get an array of photos showing  the beauty and  frustration that snow caused today.

A quick note about today’s snow before we start the photos: The snow accumulation broke a statewide record. The former record was, from what I can find, 23 inches. Siloam Springs got 24.5 inches of snow. So yes, those measuring the snow had to use yardsticks instead of rulers.

Now for the photos!

Lana F. HutchinsFlowers already shared this one, but I thought it was worth repeating. Perry from Springdale offered this photo of a snow plow getting stuck in the snow at the Elm Springs Road exit off Interstate 540 in Springdale.

Another First Arkansas News reporter contribution: There's a flower pot somewhere under there at Eleanor Evans' place.

The snow piled in when Ashley opened her door in Rogers.

Don't think Ashley or her husband will be riding this motorcyle any time soon.

Ashley's husband and dog check out the snow.

It looks like Frosty the Snowman decided to have a seat at Kim's house in Bentonville.

Lana took these two photos an hour apart at her home in Fayetteville this morning.

Tammy's child proves to be a good measuring stick at their home in Lowell.

Tammy and her family will not be having any outdoor picnics this week.

It might be a couple of days before this PT cruises anywhere.

Tasha's fence is pretty much offering support for the snow.

More cute children showing how high the snow was, this time in Siloam Springs.

I couldn't even get my back door open to take this photo of our grill. Unlike previous storms we've had this winter, no grilling was conducted at the Smith household in Bentonville. This photo, by the way, was taken around 8:30 a.m. and several more inches fell after that.

It must be said ... "Dude, where's my car?"
