The first week of Spring has proved to be very interesting here in NW Arkansas. With a rather mild winter behind us we had our sites set on sunshine mixed with the traditional spring storms. Instead we’ve had winter weather watches, warnings. On the second day of spring the temps were in the low to mid 40’s over much of the area…it was cloudy and dreary. As I sat at work looking out window I observed the following… snow flakes the size of VW Bugs, sleet, rain a tiny bit of sunshine thrown in just to make sure we thoroughly confused. The temps dipped lower 30’s but remained above freezing…and then THUNDER and lightening…really…I’m not kidding you. We’ve had one form or another of water fall from the sky every day since. Welcome to spring 2013 in NW Arkansas.
