Well, it does look pretty…


This is the scene out our back door and beyond the fence this morning as the first rays of the rising sun light up the snow-clad trees.

Needless to say, this is turning into a remarkably snowy winter for northeast Arkansas and there’s more in the forecast for late this week.

I’m stuck at home all day, unless I decided to take a chance with my snow-challenged Honda del Sol. The overnight high was 31 at midnight and the temperature has been dropping steadily as a cold front rushes into this part of the Mid-South. That means last night’s feb9snow02 slushy roads are today’s ice-covered roads. The local TV station had a telephone interview with the head of the county highway department this morning. He has very few resources to meet a winter challenge of this magnitude and the subtext of his remarks was “just be careful because we can’t do anything about this.”

So far, I only have one new book order to fill and it can wait until tomorrow if necessary. Ditto picking up the mail.
