A White Christmas

By December 26, 2012

Follow me on:

Yesterday was the first Christmas day since 1926 where Little Rock got new snow that actually stuck on the ground.  There have been flurries and ice on Christmas Day, and a few Christmases where snow was on the ground.  This year, there was actual snow falling (about 5-8 inches, I haven't heard the official a.m. count).

Unfortunately, the romanticized white Christmas didn't happen.  About 187,000 Entergy customers were without power yesterday.  Roads in Little Rock were awful.  I heard reports of Christmas dinners being ruined by power outage.  I even had friends get stranded trying to visit relatives.  It's not as nice as the show at The Rep makes it out to be.

I have some important winter weather links that let you check road conditions, closings and report power outages (yesterday, Entergy's outage number was swamped.  I imagine they know your power is out).  Check the resources for winter weather out.
