Third Time is a Charm
Heavy snow fell this morning in northwest Arkansas. A few reports indicate up to two feet of snow fell from near Rogers to Witter. The hardest hit counties include Benton, Washington and Madison counties. Newton County also saw over a foot of snow with sections of highway 7 closed at one point. All roads are now open but are still snow covered and very slick. A new daily snowfall record was set for Harrison today with 10" recorded officially at the airport. This breaks the old record of 7" set in 1912. Less snow fell the farther north one goes in the viewing area. Springfield's official total was 2.5" bringing the yearly total to almost 19". Average snow for a year is around 17" so I say we now get on with spring.
