Mountain Home and Snow!

March 11, 2017

Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day for a drive. The skies were bright blue and although cool, it was pleasant. We saw some beautiful Chinese redbuds at the local library in Mt. Home.

I stayed with a good friend last night in Cotter. We had a nice visit 

and what a gorgeous view and sunset.

What a difference a day makes. This morning it was cold and gloomy as I drove to Mt. Home to speak at the 23 annual  How to Have an Ozark Green Thumb. They have it down to a science and were so organized. 

They had a full day of educational talks, plus educational displays all around the room.

I think their opening cartoon was a tad too prophetic.

As I left after lunch, the sleet was beginning to fall. By Yellville snow and sleet were falling in earnest with some of the biggest flakes I have ever seen. The temperature dropped to 30 degrees and the roads got dicey in a hurry.

I did not take these pictures while driving, but 2 MGs were with me and they could photograph while I concentrated on the road. Luckily we got out of the snow/sleet by St. Joe and the temp got back to 34 by Clinton. But there was ice in the top of many of the trees on the side of the road. By LR it was 41 and not yet raining, but that started soon after I pulled in.

We were happy to be home, but poor Kim Pittcock drove in snow both coming and going to Jonesboro. She was the last speaker and had this to see as she left.

And these are shots of the home where I stayed last night. 

We obviously left at the right time! Now we have to wait and see how cold it gets tonight. Low temps are forecast for the next 4 days! Potential damage is here!
