Northern Arkansas Ice Storm January 09

Here in White County Arkansas, we had ice for one day and warm rain the next. We escaped the brunt of the storm. 45 minutes North of us though was a completely different story. Mt. View was shuttered for several days; trees are splintered by the thousands. Even Wal-Mart was closed. (You'd think after a year that had 100 yr tornadoes and floods, Wally World would have its act together.) My buddies in Melbourne, Izard County did some A+ video reporting of the situation - they've had a very busy year with such. CHeck it out

We wanted to go up and check out our land in Mt. View this Saturday, but too many people have warned us that the steep road hasn't seen the sun yet and the creek will be too high to cross.

Dagnabbit, I wanna crank up our new chain saw.

Hi, I'm Randy and we live in Mtn, View. Loved your post about the ice storm. We really had it rough here, we are close to Guion on the Mtn. View side.

Hopefully 2009 will be better to this area. I posted about the ice storm on my blog too: ArkansasGambler.com
