Title: Crazy Weather
Post by: DogsWin7 on March 01, 2012, 08:22:07 pm
With all the crazy weather that has been going on around the nation, it takes me back to when I was in school around(50yrs) ago when the Tornado ripped thru Greenwood.  I always hate to see devastation from twisters.  I know spring is here, and I always fear the worst.  Just thought I would tell everyone to remember those devastated by Tornado's.

 Any Crazy weather you remember when you where a kid?

My father "worked" that tornado when I was young, I remember him telling us how bad it was and then driving down from Ft. Smith to see.

I remember as a kid, we didn't have all the warnings on tv and there were no sirens.   My dad and I would stand outside and watch the sky if it was during the day.   If it was night and even the smallest storm came up, mom would herd us all down to our basement where we had cots to finish out the night.  Dad would watch the barometric pressure also and if it dropped then back to the basement.  Once a very bad storm came up and my grandfather was trying to open the door and it was just not going to open.  He yelled at us to get to the basement.  It didn't hit us but it was close to our house. 

I like today's way of alerting us of bad weather much better.   :) I just  wish I had a basement.

Seriously considered taking up the Goverment on the $3000 tax deduction or something like that to put in a Tornado Shelter.  I need one for the g-kids to come over and use.  I have to say my great granddad listened to Noah Weather, not only for weather but for the river crest reports he worked at the Lock and darn in Ozark.  Still listen to Noah Weather, cause of him.

My gosh it was so windy up here in NEA that I thought I was going to be sucked up in the air.  I went to Burger King at lunch and I couldn't see where I was going because my hair looked like an afro.   Shoulda worn a pony tail today.

Yikes!   Hope you have a life preserver!   I think we are going to get some rain but nothing like that side of the state.  Of course my son has gone to a river so now I am trying not to worry about him.   

My lawn did get mowed today so it can soak that rain up.  I think this is the earliest I ever remember mowing the lawn.

We were in Memphis yesterday and I tried to get daughter to stop at the track but you know how that goes.   The princess got her way.   :)   She just HAD to get back home. 

Medium rare is the only way to have a steak IMO.

A good cut of meat, I don't do much more than sear it. I guess they call it being served bleu.

It is called bleu or raw in AR!

If steaks are over cooked you can't even taste the flavor of the beef IMO. but I like it medium well.
Title: Re: Crazy Weather
Post by: Breitontime on March 26, 2012, 03:17:25 pm
That's way too done. Medium rare is the most a decent cut of meat should he cooked. Anything after that is draining massive amounts of flavor.

It was HUMID in San Antonio.   I mean really humid and they are really concerned about this summer too.

Good thing I can get to some cool water this summer. 

 I'm sorry for those who hate the heat.   I agree that 30 days of that temp is too much and I hope it doesn't do that again but I am thinking we better get ready for it again.

The wind is unrelenting right now.  I just drove to Paragould.  To the Walmart.  Record time in and out 28 minutes.  I had stopped at the traffic light and my car felt like a small earthquake was going on.     The dust is horrible.   I hope it will blow all this pollen away so I will quit sneezing.

Hot in May, temperate in June.

All in all, not too bad weather wise this year to date.

One aspect that has made this year a little more tolerable has been the (almost continuous) presence of a breezy - even on the hottest days. 

Has anyone read or heard of an explanation on why we are getting more breeze this year?

 El Niño?  La Niña? or some other explanation?

Whatever it is, I for one am happy to have the breeze and hope it continues..it is making things much more tolerable.

It makes us do stupid stuff:

"A woman who allegedly left the scene of a minor traffic crash in Van Buren told police she did it because she didn't want her ice cream to melt.

Van Buren police say a vehicle was stopped in the westbound lane of Arkansas Highway 59 at about 6 p.m. Sunday when it was reportedly rear-ended by a vehicle driven by (female).

Police say (she) kept going, so the other driver called police and followed her home.

Fort Smith television station KHBS reports (she) told police she didn't think there was enough damage to merit stopping. She also said she didn't want her ice cream to melt.
(She) was cited for following too closely and leaving the scene of an accident.

No listed number for (her) could be located."

Not to hot for the 1st day of school!   In the 80's for now...

School was started to teach kids how to read the bible, and now no bible allowed, sad imo.   Prayers to all the kids, teachers and staff!  Have a Great Year!

It's unreal.  They do it during the night and it's awful.  The best thing is to try and spray the ground to kill the worms they feed or with an aroma that scares them.

Armadillo's have no natural predator left.  They fear wolves and the like, but the wolves don't bother with them.

Hate the Hurricane really for all the people who have had to evacuate their homes and are worried about what can happen like a few years ago.   Football is Football.  It can be played anytime.  I keep it real.

There were actually 2 tornadoes touch down in Corning with how the paths were that we saw. The  NWS say otherwise though...Everyone is OK in Corning It only hit the airport(thankfully no one was working in the hangars that day) and maybe 2-3 homes that were next to and across the highway from the airport..
The hardest part is waiting since it's a holiday weekend, we can't call insurance or workers to come out and start moving metal until Tuesday!!!

The  NWS say otherwise though...Everyone is OK in Corning It only hit the airport(thankfully no one was working in the hangars that day) and maybe 2-3 homes that were next to and across the highway from the airport..
The hardest part is waiting since it's a holiday weekend, we can't call insurance or workers to come out and start moving metal until Tuesday!!!
I also had a friends Auto Body and Used Car Lot in Paragould get hit by a touch n go tornado...

That's bad.  Sorry to hear that. I HATE TORNADOS!  It's frustrating when you are off work and could get things done and can't because everything is closed.

Good Luck and God Bless.


Weather now at 8:02 am is 76 degrees should warm-up nicely to 103 :P!!!!!!!!! To HOT!  Pool done shut down.... :'(

Hope everyone has a great Labor Day.  Fall weather should be around the corner now!

i would go to alaska.  i love it when it is cold.  the colder the better.  there are lots of ways to warm up but only so many things to cool off.  being hot and sweaty makes me miserable and grouchy.  being cold makes me feel great!

and btw valley.....i grew up in a house with 1 window unit and an attic fan right outside my bedroom door.

Post by: Valleysports on September 05, 2012, 06:43:23 pm
I would stop off at Grandma's, on Franklin St - Tex side, on my way home from Tech to Tyler.  Would just walked around to the spare bedroom, pop the screen, and go to sleep to the sound of the Attic Fan.  She'd find me or one my cousins the next morning.  Scared the heck out of me to sleep next to that open window, as a kid, after watching 'The Legend of Boggie Creek'.  :-[

We loved Alaska, especially the first 5 yrs of snow, but it got old and the awesome summers just weren't long enough.  My mother-n-law's first visit (from AR) was in Jan, when my first born was born.  She stepped out the front door of the Anchorage Airport and collapsed when her breathe sucked out by -50 deg F air....  ;D

Real sorry to hear that AHM!  What size Hangar was it?  I'd like to know what plane you replace it with also.  Money goes a lot further buying planes right now. 

It was a HUGE hangar it was the one they keep showing on the news that has the Air Tractor in it..There were 2 Air Tractors, a Cesna and our Piper Cherokee 140 in the hangar along with 2 boats, and 3 wings for an Air Tractor. Plus other miscellaneous parts and tools.
We are Piper people so we know that our next plane will be a Piper but not sure what kind.. We are looking at Archers, Arrows, and Warriors...Budget will be around $45,000 but we want a fresh annual on whatever we get.

That would be the one - I spent the day cutting up and hauling trees out of neighbors yards.  I lost a chain link fence, which a tree crushed. My neighbor's son lives on Morgan, said his garage doors were sucked inward.  Makes me think about people who get hit by tornadoes and what the real thing would be like...

And it's getting dark!  Wow it's pouring!  ;D

Well if you haven't noticed, my job can get a bit boring over 12-18 hr shifts...  ;D
Yes, I can watch the deer walking through the back yard - time patterns.  There is a feeder out there also.  During season, I'll start hunting from here (AK) at day break.  When a buck comes in, my son gets a awake up call.  My family thinks there are some drawbacks as well, like I can see the yard needs mowing, the pool is turning green, horses need watering....etc..  Tomorrow my wife & son are going to put in a food plot - if it isn't too wet.  I'll be watching through the eye in the sky.  A lot of pool parties, but daughter usually remembers to unplug it.  However it is wireless, so you never know where it just might show up. :) Like if we go on vacation - camera is watching driveway.  Occasionally when there are get-to-gethers, they'll bring the camera into the kitchen, so I'm right there.  Yesterday, I watched her nephew swim, while she was cooking.  But the #1 reason - I'm trying to catch Big Foot sneaking through our woods - I know he's been out there, just can't catch him.  OK - it's a toy!  8)

Just trying to get one more swim in before I close it up - my son likes it cold, probably way to cold already for me.  If you come to the party, I'll give you a truck load of Seasoned Firewood .  We really could have a NWA State Championship Party - both teams could stage at my house before heading on down to War Memorial OR I could grab a couple of the same refs and we could shoot it out on Techs New Field....

Besides I've designed something neat - heated Jock Strap.  I want to see how it works in cold water.  Pretty simple - I'm calling it the Shake and Bake.  I think you're going to want one of these..

Sounds good!  I shut my pool down labor day. :'(  I love swimming, and anything outdoors.  Keep trying to teach my little one but he has a hard time being disabled.  I have locks everywhere!   Might hang on to that firewood Valley they say this Winter will be a record setter possibly.  But I understand wanting it out of the yard.   Donate it to Tech for a bonfire! ;D

Was figuring you was just joking, but I try to keep an eye for free/cheap firewood for my parents. My dad insists on having a wood stove and using it as his main heat source, even though he has gas and electric heat to. Not dissing would heat I have a wood stove in my house for back-up, it's kinda nice to just walk over and turn the thermostat up when I'm cold instead of messing with a wood stove lol

Round Bale? You meaning hay or am I just missing the point like I think I am..lol

And the deer hunting sounds like my parents back yard, if my mom would let dad shoot them......I've seen as many as eight at one time in their orchard, well within bow range of the back porch lol.

HF - remind me after thurs....  cause I'll have sooo much going on - putting up Hay, working duck blinds (I'm going to need 4 feet of rain pretty soon), I need to stack firewood myself... I forget easily  ;)   Can't wait to see the fall weather - leaves turning color - roaring fire in my totally inefficient fire place.

Valley I can't believe you want to kill those poor little innocent ducks that just want to land in your area for a rest and a quick meal and a little Valley hospitality... that's not nice!

Valley Hospitality is right - I've have rice, millet, corn, a buffet layed out for these ducks. 

It's nice weather when you can drive, your truck, with your arm/elbow out the window..  Such a nice day!  :D

It's feels good outside right now.  Got my hoodie on. 

I didn't go to the Johnny Cash Remembrance last night but stayed home under the blanket and watched the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Braves.  It rained cats and dogs but there were tons of cars at the Convo last night.

  Today I have been downtown to the Bar B Que festival.   Ran several errands.  I am now about to put on the stove some Irish Stew.  Popping some crusty french bread in the oven.  And probably settling down for the evening.  Unless someone convinces me to get back out to go see 38 Special tonight back at the Bar B Que Fest.  :)

We could smell the smoke from Main Street at our clinic yesterday and it smelled like heaven!!!!  Plus Blessed Sacrament was cooking bar b que too for their Fall Festival!

I had bar b que twice last week.  Can't get enough.  :)

UGH!   Today will be rough.  The storms came through here about 2:30 am.  Woke me up.  The dogs decided to want to go out at 3:30 am.   I haven't been asleep since the stores.  Hurry up 5 pm.

People in windy places know to park their vehicles towards the wind.  If a good gust of wind catches your door, when you open it, you'll realize what I'm talking about.  And it's an expensive lesson.

Dear Lord,

If You are going to let it snow here in NEA, please let it snow bunches and not some just little biddily amount that makes me think I can drive on it to go to work on Wed.  Let it snow enough that I will know there is no way my sedan can make it and if they want me at work, they will come get me.  Not that I can't drive on it but because of the other idiots behind the wheel of their cars.

Thanks Lord!

Sincerely,

TB   :)

That big snow and ice back in 04 I believe it was, there would not have been so many problems if not for the fools who have no business on the road. Cutting off semis and the like. I had to spend the night at Morgan and carry on to Marshall the next day. I never had a lick of problems and the idiots were in ditches and upside down everywhere .

Pack the trunk down with cat litter.   Drive slow.  Pat your brakes.

It's not that hard to drive in snow.  My teacher was my daddy and I never saw him in the ditch.  He would put it in low and go right up the hills.

Now ice.  That's a totally different story.  I was sitting at a red traffic light in LR once.  Came to a complete stop.  Had been sitting there stopped completely for maybe 30 seconds and my car just started sliding on it's own.  Ice means I stay home.

Yep, that's the way it works around here,  warm enough to bring in the moisture, then a cold front to trigger the snow/sleet/freezing rain. If it's really cold, the moisture gets squeezed out and we get nothing or a dusting. I for one, hope we miss it, I hit the slopes when I want to see snow.

That puts the heaviest snow across west central, central, and NE Arkansas. Draw a line from Mena to Jonesboro. 50 miles north and south of that line is what I'm talking about.

It's 47 here in the Spa City.
But there is an ENE wind at about 20 mph. If we get any clearing temps are gonna plummet.

That will bring on the changeover to snow tomorrow much sooner than expected....and an expedited trip back from El Dorado.

I can drive in heavy snow. I don't like doing it with my wife and kids though.

Put a sleeping bag in your car when it's cold and icy.  Lot of people have died, from cold exposure, while waiting on help.

0500, I-40 (Oklahoma City) is just about shutdown from car pileups and ice.  It's hard to see Black Ice, which blends in with the asphalt.  You'll be cruising along and suddenly realize you are floating.  Sometimes it'll be in an open area where the wind just puts a glaze on the road.  Of course bridges are going to ice over.  Brakes are the worst thing to use on and ice, give it gas and let your front wheel drive straighten you up.

Have to wipe your head lights and tail lights, often, when all that yuk is blowing and splattering on you car.

A bit of rain/sleet mid afternoon followed by a lot of blowing, wet snow. 
Probably 4 - 6 inches on the ground here but unlikely to stay very long since our ground is still fairly warm.
Considerable wind gusts here to around 25 mph or so.

That is shifter in which the set screw broke.  So it was machined out an re-threaded.  When I went to put the new screw in, it was too big to go through the hole on the frame post.  I could drill the hole bigger (on frame) or just get a new shifter/ correct screw.
Title: Re: Crazy Weather
Post by: Breitontime on December 26, 2012, 01:22:49 pm
Or, you could have a screw made. Ask whoever machined and tapped you a new hole to turn you a screw on a lathe. The top of it can be the diameter of the lever, the bottom the diameter of the frame. Just have to make sure it's the proper pitch.

All you'd need is a bolt, and one of these to thread it.

We got 8 inches.  I hate snow.  I hate ice.  I drove to work at the top speed of 25 and that was too fast.  Got stuck trying to get out of the drive way.  Rocked that baby until I got going again.  Got stuck turning off of a main street onto a side street.  Backed up and went a different way.  Got stuck trying to get back into my driveway.

Im exhausted.  Going to bed early tonight.

And yep.  It stuck.  It stuck real good.  My lab likes it though.  He ran and ran.

13" at my place near Magic Springs. Up the road in Jessieville, they got 15".

I haven't seen that much fall that fast since I was in Chicago in the late 90s. We got most of that in about 4 hrs time.

Had we not gotten dry slotted, some of us in this part of the state would have flirted with 20".

I'm very serious - it's the one vitamin I'm sold on.  I take fish oil & a multivitamin also, but that D doesn't just help mood and winter blues. 

Wife has a cousin who was using a walker and schedule for hip surgery on Monday.  On Thursday he ran into an old friend (Doc), at the Sizzler, who told Joe to come by the clinic in the morning and let me do some test.  After testing, he told him it does look bad - he prescribed like 6000 iu of Vit D3, twice a day.  Joe was very doubtful, but delaying surgery wasn't going to hurt.  3 weeks later he was back to walking normal.  3 months later he was back to his passion, water skiing, and you'd never know there had been a problem.  Joe is about 57.

Vitamins do not need a prescription unless you are trying very high doses.  B12 injections need a prescription.

Some areas got up to around 5 inches I was told.  Maybe 6.   I know it rained hard and constant here around Jonesboro!   The Spring was high but going back down now.    The low water bridges were covered but some friends in Hardy said they could drive over them now.

Turn around, don't drown. 

I'm ready for sun but looks like we may get a little bit more.  But nothing like last night.

So all the rain spread the ducks out and my hunting isn't so great right now.  But I sat there this morning, in possibly the neatest duck blind ever built, I'm told, just watching the snow coming down.  I'm having to canoe in and out now.  I feel like Travis Crabtree, canoeing around in those Cypress Bottoms.  Remember Travis?

Valley, you're not going "soft" on us are you? ;)  You're a rough and tumble man who has experience from your days in "The Last Frontier" state.

The temp here is currently right at 0 with a negative wind chill of -10 to -15.  Some of the ski resorts in the higher elevations were closed down because of more dangerous temps and wind chills.  That rarely happens here in the Granite State.

It never gets cold with the right gear, Valley. I have an armored textile jacket for warm weather. It gets cool, I break out the Vanson leathers. It's never cold in those.

Some of my biker buddies up North (PA, Upstate NY) ride year round. They wire an AC plug in, and buy heated suits. It's like a personal heater.

No Valley it doesn't make me feel better it makes me feel worse because I wouldn't want anyone I know to have to endure those temps!  That's way too cold!!!

Wind has been strong here today but I think by the weekend should be back up in the mid 50's or 60's.

I'd have to say my favorite is surrealism.
I spend a decent amount of time at the Salvador Dali museum.

I have a friend who does amazing paintings, for very reasonable prices, $150-$300. She's the one who got me into art a few years back.

That's a very good price for oil paintings. 



impressionists are my favorite.  esp. monet.

It gets super cold in Orlando, then super hot in the summer. Spring Training there sucked. 30's, 40's in the morning, bumping 90 by noon.

Christmas 09 we came from Tampa to Arkansas for the holiday, drove straight from Arkansas to Miami to see the ex's Cuban familia. It was colder in Miami than it was in Arkansas. If I remember correctly, it set a record for low temps, dipped down into the upper 20's on South Beach.

So I wash my hands singing Happy Birthday to me 2 x's.  I wipe my desk down with Disinfectant.  I use the wipies at Kroger, Walmart etc.  Had my flu shot.   Held my breath if someone sneezed or coughed near me until I could get away from that area.

I was sick in the bed could not get up for 4 days.  Tired, sore throat, cough from you know where, swollen tonsils, no fever.  Went to the dr.  Swabbed for strep and the flu.  Came back negative.  Said it was viral.  No drugs for that.   Get to wait it out.

Ribs hurt from coughing.  Head feels like a water balloon.  Nose raw from blowing.  Can't taste anything.  Been through 2 boxes of Kleenix.

Looking at possible accumulation N and W of a Ft Smith/Greers Ferry/Harrisburg line, as well as the Ouachita Mountains (that's me).

1-4" is the preliminary forecast at the moment.

Now, BG, seeing how you're so consumed with my life, I'll now await your response.

A bus slid off the road by one of my friends house.  It was reported that kids and bus driver were injured and etc, in Russellville.  Just a flat out fabricated report.  Everyone was fine.  Oh and the bus didn't roll either.  lol

Yes, only ice on the trees.  None of the roads.  Yet.

Of course when I come out of Kroger, a toad strangler is coming down.  Yes I got wet and am freezing but I was so glad it wasn't freezing rain or sleet, I didn't even care!!

Bre, that's coming off the Alaskan Trail from Crow Mtn.  If that tree hadn't of caught it, it would have rolled down the side of the mtn. Just to the right of the pic is straight down.

I stayed at the Ritz about 7 years ago, but it wasn't all inclusive. I really didn't see anything to spend a lot of time down there. It seemed more a college town now, I did enjoy a trip in country to see the Mayan ruins. Have you looked at the Cabo area? Lots of great golf courses and resorts, and you can always fish out of Cabo.
Title: Re: Crazy Weather

I echo RP's thoughts, I prefer Cabot to Cancun.
Title: Re: Crazy Weather
Post by: Valleysports on February 25, 2013, 03:28:40 pm
Cabot?  :o

Well we haven't been to Cancun in 20 yrs, but loved it back then.  Was in Cozmel last year, grown too much.  South of Cancun there are caves you can swim through and stuff like that.  I've seen enough of real mexico, I could lay out on the beach or sit by the pool relaxing all day.  Don't care much about the fishing at Cabo anymore.  Would go to Kauai if I was going to that side.  Ya'll got anything else?  Been to Jamaica...  Hawai many times..  How about the Virgin Islands?
Title: Re: Crazy Weather
Post by: ricepig on February 25, 2013, 04:16:14 pm
The only time I was in the Virgin Islands was on a cruise and we only stayed a day, it was nice, but I don't remember anything special. It did seem like we snorkled there, but it was one of those cruises were we stopped at several islands and they all seemed the same. I've got a good friend who's brother is one of those team sport fishing guys and has a condo in Costa Rica, I really enjoyed fishing down there, and I'm not a big small boat kind of guy in the oceans. That was more a guys trip if you know what I mean, haha. I haven't been to Aruba, but another buddy went there on his honeymoon and said it was fabulous.

I've been to Cabo four times and have always felt safe, but I stay about 30 minutes from Cabo at a resort. I did have a friend who's group was robbed by a gang further up the Baja coast, but they wondered off the beaten path on a four wheeler/dune buggy ride.

Atlantis is perfect.  And you can sometimes get a good deal on the rooms.  We have also stayed in Nassau.  A little rougher than Atlantis but the beaches are great.  Be careful which taxis' you take.  If you just stay at an all inclusive that is the way to go of course.  The Open Market is quite the experience if you want to get out.  Just always be careful.

I took my kids a few years ago to Atlantis for spring break, they had a blast. There was enough entertainment for all of us, but TB is correct, parts of Nassau are rough. I get the impression that you just want to sit on the beach and run the flag up for the waitress?

Had the family and friends over for ham, potato salad, baked beans, rolls, deviled eggs, Easter candy and banana split pie.

Now going to pass out  for a nap and the sun comes out.    :/   Hope everyone has had a blessed and wonderful
Easter!!

Dumber might be the better word :D, Liquor makes ya dumber not braver, I mean that because I woke up under my sleeping bag not in it, in a patch of poison Ivy at that, thank god I'm not allergic to that stuff.....We put in Saturday at Pruitt, and got out at Mt Hersey Sunday evening. River had come up a good 3-5 feet from Saturday Morning to Sunday Afternoon. Got lucky though and never flipped the canoe, even though we did do a 360 through the worst rapids we hit lol

Shawnee, Oklahoma (CNN) -- [Breaking news update at 4:58 p.m. (EST) Monday]
 
Areas of metropolitan Oklahoma City appeared to be in shreds Monday afternoon after a massive tornado moved through the region. "The houses are destroyed. ... Completely leveled," a helicopter pilot for CNN affiliate KFOR said. A school was apparently among the structures leveled by the twister.........

The tornado was estimated to be at least two miles wide at one point as it moved through Moore, Oklahoma, in the southern part of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, CNN affiliate KFOR reported.
 
Meteorologists warned residents to go underground to survive a direct hit from the tornado.
 
"It's just destroying everything. There's so many homes in the air right now. The motion on this storm is sickening," said storm chaser Spencer Basoco.
 
More than 171,000 people could have been in the path of the storm.

Good friend of mine lived in Moore in 1999 when that one occurred.  I just heard the NBH he lived in was two blocks from that elementary school.  He moved back from there ten years ago.

The deal with these kids at the schools has to be nightmarish on many fronts.  It has to be hard to know what kids were where and trying to account for whomever might have already been picked up.  You can't forget that the teachers who might know that info might not be in a position to speak.

Best thing at this point is that area is seemingly safe for the night and they have lots of daylight.

Aren't we on the extreme for a nice summer this year?  Nearly June and not over 90 yet, rain coming every few days, ponds are flush.  Wonder where we are on official drought now?  One thing I'm watching is mosquitoes, I just remember how E Tex had drought for 2 yrs and the next time they had a wet year (last yr), their West Nile went Wild...  I've picked up a lot of ticks and seen a lot more snakes than usual the last few days.  Teal season 3 months out...

Talked to my old men friends at the Fitness Center, this morning, they said we ain't near caught up on the drought.  We're getting little shower in Russellville now.  Those old guys are such a source of information. 

Today's discussion was barbecuing.  Among many things, I learned, was to wrap the wood chips in tin foil like Hershey Kisses.  I have a dozen wrapped and ready now.  I molded the tin foil around a salt shaker, put the wood chips in, a straw, gave it the final twist, and pulled the straw out.  Place these little smoking tepee's right on those HOT coals.

I like all 4 seasons!  Like summer for grilling, swimming, golfing, running, motorcycling, canoes, being active.  Like Winter for wearing flannel, getting that fireplace going, fishing, snow skiing, or going some place warm, etc. .  Of course this is all tied in with Fall to Spring Hunting....

I know a lot of people who have moved or are moving to Arizona.  HF the weather is really to your liking and houses 50% off, but climbing.

While enjoying summer, one time, I went through Tilly on the way to Marshall to canoe.  Kids were less than impressed - with my back road decision on that one.  I began to wonder if we'd make it the same day myself.  Find me a nearby pasture, we'll fly in and take them a Sunday Paper.  LOL  Y'all think that's strange, but I had many friends, in Alaska, who loved to see me coming for that very reason.

It's something like 26 miles from my house to my in-laws up there...we go up every sunday. I don't even think about it anymore...but when we first started dating, it was a long drive for me  haha..lol

Tilly?  I'd have to look that up on a map.  Never heard of it.

Good Luck finding it on some maps :D

Lol it's close to Juddville and Witts Spring.

Juddville...haha..never thought I'd see that mentioned on the internet lol...Been told that hardly any of the Judd's live there anymore, and haven't seen the little store open in forever...



Tilly is 26 miles from Hector, or 30 miles south of Marshall on Highway 27. It's 45 miles to russellville give or take a little...about 45 minutes from clinton. And Valley highway 27 is one of my favorite drives from Hector to Marshall....Hwy's 377 and 74 from Witt Springs to Hwy 65 is a pretty drive as well..

Best viewing, for Elk, starts 1/4 mile south of downtown Ponca.   At Dawn / Dusk they'll be between the river &  fields next to the road.  Be on the look out because they will step off the wooded slope, on west side of the road, out in front of your car crossing to the east side.  Take your binoculars.

Only place I've ever seen one was(I think it's on hwy 74), near Steel Creek camp ground, was a Cow and a Calf...Dad's seen some Bull Elk North of Jasper near Pruitt...Heard they've been seen as far south as Moccasin Gap(North of Dover on 7) though...and I know the folks up near Snowball wish they'd go away...Forest Department has no problem fining you for your cattle being on the National River Park Lands...but won't pay a dime to fix the fences that the Elk broke in the first place...

They have been bad.  I normally don't kill any inside the house and this year I have killed several.

I'm hoping by next week it will be at least in the 90's.  Headed to the lake for a few days.  Need it to be warmer than 84.

prob. talking about crystal springs.  it is closed down now i think.  several years ago, liberty eylau middle school took a group of kids out there at the end of the year and one of the kids drowned.  spring lake park is on texas side.  they had a pool but not a beach type area like crystal springs was.  they filled in the pool at spring lake park and put in a big splash pad.  they have also opened up a water park on arkansas side not far from my house.

ha ha ricepig I knew what you were thinking - they might actually move teal season to Sept 1.  Yes it's just a teaser of a season, but it's something.  My swamp is holding water pretty well, that's what I'm liking.  Last year I was on dry land until Dec, then flooded out.

Cuckabird seems like there is a bumper crop on the deer.  I'm finishing several with soybean, corn, grain, & of course protein.  Have to do some WRP culling this year, been shootin that bow.

My neighbor is mowing his yard.  He obviously did not go through it and pick up stuff.  He's just running over it.  I hope no one misses  a child in the neighborhood because if it's in that grass, it's a goner.

He did my neighbors, but left a few tracks on Monday, I suspect he'll be here tomorrow. They always leave it high so it looks lush, but they will have plenty of trips to the trailer to empty the clippings this week.

I haven't been back down there but plan on heading there this weekend to do a little clean up. My brother did go get the camera and he was on there again with some others that were decent but no wall hangers. Man I hope this guy hangs around until rifle season. I'm no bow hunter but my lil bro is. He will probably wound the dang thing before I get a shot at him. 2 years ago he shot at a good one that he never found until we were duck hunting one day and my dog found it. It scored 160. stinkin bow hunters!

Valley I have been duck hunting.  I'm sorry but gettin up that early and freezing is not for me. 

Even though it was beautiful watching the sun rise and watching the ducks come in.  But I was so cold I could not control my teeth chattering!   I thought I might scare the ducks away they were chattering so badly.

I will just stay in the lodge and drink coffee thank you.  Burrrrrr!!!

Valley, the only thing that helps my outlook in the winter is looking forward to spring and summer.   I really don't like winter.  I MISS the sunshine.  I need to be one of those people that can leave when it gets cold and go lay on a beach somewhere.  I would stay out all day but I can't so I will have freeze even with an electric blanket!  I do like to see the pretty leaves change color in the fall.

I have been duck and quail hunting etc. with my Dad when I was little.  I loved being with my Dad...he would have to help me or carry me half the time across the water...lol!!! but he would make the hunting trip short and fun! :)

What just happened?  Woke up from a nap and it was hailing, so I went to put my truck under something.  Wasn't thinking much of it, but rain/hail began to fall hard when I got to the garage.  Then I couldn't get the door open because of a vacuum pulling from the other side.  That got my attention and I thought I'd better go get clean underwear on, just in case, or even put pants on.  Looking out the window I see several trees twisted and broke off.  Back in bed, with Weather Channel on.

The hard part for me is the big swings in the temps. 40's during the day, 20's at night, then a few days later it's back to the 60's and 70's for highs and 50's for lows, just hard to adjust.

Did not need ice to keep the fish cold .... LOL

Usually you can hear the semis on 65 a few miles away across the valley and coupla hills. Standing out here on the porch, all you can here is the coyotes and some geese flying somewhere up there, and of course the sleet which has slacked up some. Hate winter, but it sure does have it's moments.

Please continue to pray for the ones who are still without....I have many family and friends still without power.     

It's Ice covered and the trees are all severely damaged.

Prayers for all without heat!   I have cabin fever already.  Baked brownies and cookies.  Thinking about baking a pie.  Need to get out. 

Guess I can walk down to the gas station and back.

We made the half hour drive to the liquor store a bit ago, roads weren't too bad. Though, the usual half hour was stretched to about 50 minutes.

I need to go to sleep. I haven't slept since Thursday. Snow day, and night festivities and all have limited my sleep opportunities.

Within 10 hours of my power going off, the temp in my house went from 72 degrees to 61.   Within the next 14 hours it had dropped to 39 degrees.   Praying for all without heat and for the workers who are out trying to help.    It's extremely dangerous with all the trees continuing to fall and when they do restore power it's not for a little while in some cases because another tree or line will break do to the weight of the ice.

I'll be glad when it melts.

The main roads in J'boro are ok, some of the side roads are ice rink comparable. I ventured to the McD's on Nettleton and Caraway, people were doing 180's and 360's try to park are drive around to the drive thru, quite the scene. I asked them why they hadn't had someone scrape their lot, got a IDK???

Brookland schools are closed tomorrow.  The side roads are a solid sheet.  Drove to the closest gas station to me and they were out of gas.  Drove to the next one and filled old Besty up.  Benz did fine but sure wish I had my dad's chains for his tires.  I get funny looks from the good old boys in their 4 wheel drives but I didn't have any problems.  Just go slow and try to keep away from the idiots.  Daughter said 49 is slushy.

You don't want a lot scrapped - it makes driving much worse when you remove the snow and leave only the ice...

Hmm, Walmart, our church, and about 70% of the businesses used a bobcat or blade to scrape their parking lots on Sat, all were good this.morning. I'm not talking about a road grader or truck going 30 mph doing it, I'm saying put your blade/bucket down and remove it. It's worked all over town where they did this.

Yes, That's what's wrong with the roads in Hector...well that and Pope County isn't bothering to do anything to actually clear the roads this year. Two of the main side roads are completely cleared off, but Hiway 27 through town is an ice rink for most of it.

School's already been canceled for Hector tomorrow, and ATU is delaying for an hour or two..

You are a sweetheart!   Seven we just like warm weather!!!   :)    Diehard, you do need to go to the beach!  It is so relaxing and beautiful!    We go every year!   Although we have a cabin that we go to in the Ozarks too and it's hard to beat that!  I love water and when it's hot that is the place to be!

But when it's cold what can I do?  Sit inside and be bored to tears!!!   Love to read but I can do that at the lake or beach!  You can hike when it's cold.  Don't hunt. 

I am an old tomboy who just has to be outside!!!  Sitting inside makes me sad!

Over the last few years, we've had a lot families visit while I've had a roaring fire going.  Some will just stare, then say they had forgotten how nice a real fireplace is (the beauty side of it anyway).  Two have unconverted their fireplaces back to real wood and loving it.  I think we also enjoy the wood cutting parties.  I love sitting by the fire, sipping a cup of Hot Chocolate, from the Keurig, while my clothes dry out from hunting.

Sitting inside makes me very sad.    I have been a lake and pool lover all of my life.   I feel alive when I have sunshine.  It's hard to explain.

Regarding the weather, this poster likes the seasons and always has even when growing up in Arkansas.  No question  about it, the Winters can be brutal in New England; yet, it is what we expect and one can adjust.  Snow boarding and skiing are awesome activities and a lot of fun.  The Fall is my favorite; it can't be beat here.

Having said all that, if you kind folks would be so kind as to say a few prayers for me and my son to make it safely out of Logan in Boston to the Little Rock airport in the early am tomorrow, it would be greatly appreciated. (some icing conditions exist)

I see a cardinal eating the berries off of a tree.   I should have bought some bird seed but I forgot.  Not going now.  I have some bread I can throw out for them.

That is a difference, we having clothing for -73 windchill (two weeks ago).  I can loan you an Artic Parka Ridge Rat.

Hey folks, if you try to roll your windows down - you can break the window regulator from the motor.  Also plastic becomes brittle, so don't force anything.  And if you need heat, make sure it is electric, so many warm climate people kill themselves every year because they are not used to dealing Carbon Monoxide.

How was the duck and dumplings Ivan? I've never had that before.

A little greasy, as ducks tend to be.  These were fat ducks.  I had to skim a lot of fat off the top after boiling the bird.  Lots of flavor from it, however.

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BdRT-WjCUAE18p4.jpg)

For lunch I had another bowl of it and bit down on a BB I'd missed while picking through the bird.  Chomped right down on it and a filling in a back tooth.  Hurt like a mother, but that's part of it when you eat wild game.

If you find your windshield wipers with ice on them, pull them back and pop em first.  Get the defrost on.  If you turn the wiper on and it's frozen in place, they can break.
 
Houses, down here, aren't insulated for this - open the cabinet doors under your sink, so warm air can circulate around your water pipes.  Leave your water trickling out of the faucet. 

Throw some kitty letter on ice spots, like on your steps to prevent slips.
 
Oh don't leave your parking brake on overnight - they can easily freeze in place. 

Put your heat on Emergency Heat, instead of Auto - no need to circulate it outside. 

Don't top your gas tank off and park it in your garage, where the gasoline expands.

Houses, down here, aren't insulated for this - open the cabinet doors under your sink, so warm air can circulate around your water pipes.  Leave your water trickling out of the faucet. 

And if you have water pipes in the ceiling for some reason (on a single story house) that you had no idea about, you may want to find them before they burst.

Which happened this afternoon.

Driving home at 4:30, everyone on facebook was acting like we didn't have roads, just sheets of ice on the road. I slipped in one spot that wasn't brake related(Moron in front of me kept slamming on his brakes everytime he seen a wet spot on the road...it was raining so let's just say he was alternating between the gas and brake)

Yes - but they'll be in all the fields with 4 inches of water.  I'm going to try a certain field.  Honestly we do need a lot of rain, weather it messes up my hunting or not.  Our water table is so far behind it isn't funny.

Thanks TB.......I don't have the flu...I was just commenting that  I didn't get my shot this year and I have a friend who I graduated with whose brother is on life support.  I don't know what I was thinking....I have always got one since my child was a premie.   It's really bad this year.   I feel so sad for all the families.

I always get one and the two times I haven't gotten it, I got the flu. The in the bed, high fever, hallucinating and coughing a lung up.

Got invited to be a vendor at Daytona Bike Week in a month. Definitely doing that one. That is going to be freaking awesome.

I'm at the Super Speedway right now, hanging out in the garages with about $10M in Ferarri's.

Could be. I'm back in Arkansas now. Started my bike build for the show at Daytona Bike Week today. Got a single side swingarm ordered, got a frame I'm about to hack up and redesign, and an engine to hot rod up a bit. Thinking about putting a turbo on it. Built a seat out of carbon fiber for it, still have to do the tank and fenders, maybe some sidecovers if I decide to run them.

This weather is wreaking havoc on my bank account. Being stuck inside is bad.

Oh well, Lot of parts on the way for the engine in the bike I'm building. I've been holding off dropping $800 on a set of CR race carburetors, but I spent about a hour looking at them and pulled the trigger. And an Ohlins rear shock, that ran me a touch over a grand.

Hopefully it's nice out tomorrow. Or, maybe I need to go back to Florida. That'd be cheaper than shopping for parts for one of the three bike builds going on right now.

This is a zoomed in pic from my phone this morning from the backside of the post office when I got to work today.  You can "barely" see the Goblin water tower overlooking the Stadium. I guess that it could have been worse, getting more snow from North of us or more ice from South of us.  You guys and gals take care out there.

Have I ever mentioned putting cardboard in front of your radiator?  Arkansas folks would be embarrassed, but if you have trouble with the air temp, inside car, warming up or staying warm when you're driving try it.  Just bungy a piece of cardboard or something to block the wind off the radiator.  Don't leave it when the weather is warmer - 40 degs.  Don't want to overheat your engine.

House Windows - if you have cold air leaking through your windows or they're just not insulated enough, you can put cellophane over them.  Just slap it over the whole window, trim to trim...

Due to the sucky weather. I've been at the shop all day. Building a custom bracket to mount this swingarm too. It's a wee bit wider than the inner width of the frame.

This thing is going to be pure sex when it's finished in a couple weeks.

I heard this was the case. I cannot imagine abandoning your car and walking ... when there is just 1-3 inches of snow.  Go slow and get through it.

Sad situation on I-30 at the Red River Bridge in Fulton (Hempstead County). A car lost control on the bridge and hit the concreate barrier. As the 3 passengers got out of their car a 18 wheeler jack knifed on the bridge. They inturn jumped into the river to miss getting hit by the 18 wheeler. Two of the made it out of the river, the third victim has not been found. Sad situation. Prayers to all involved. The trucker and others are doing ok.

women drivers...in Pope County...Seem the most likely to speed...I can be on the 4 lane in between Russellville and Dover, doing 65-70(speed limit is 60)...and it's nothing to get your doors blown off by a soccer mom in a mini-van...usually talking on their Cell Phone...But I don't usually drive fast to begin with...Only get into a hurry on long trips...Driving to Russellville from my house...the difference between 55-60...and 65-75 is about 3-5 minutes and a couple gallons of gas...

It's not just using their cell phones that bothers me, what about the ones that have to put on their make up while driving?  Or texting, just a couple of weeks ago coming home from Fayetteville came up beside a girl in a charger texting and doing about 60, so me doing 75 zoomed on past few minutes later she blows me off the road doing about 90.  As luck would have it catch back up to her again, this time she is all over the road and of course my wife is going nuts because she is doing about 50 this time. We pass here and once again texting.  I don't want to be around this accident about to happen so I think let's put some distance between us so I kick it in till I can't see her in the rear view any longer.  Wasn't long and here she came again doing at least 90 again. Thankfully she exited.  Crazy Woman

Same here.  Power out four days, some on the ridge out for weeks.  We didn't find out Gore had conceded till days after, no power, no news.

I spent a few days in LA that following summer and you could still see the damage.  Looked like the Air Force had went through; those soft-wood pines really took it.

True, but in close quarters such as a ship, it can spread.  Why does it seem to hang around cruise ships anyway. 

I'm sure you have, but have you ever heard of something called C-Diff?  A nurse today was telling me about it; something on the level of MRSA and how it's a big issue in hospitals that the public doesn't know that much about.

It doesn't specifically spread on a cruise ship or originate on it. Someone that has it and gets on the ship or a worker on the ship has it and spreads like wildfire. It's like at a home. One person gets it, it runs through the family like nasty nate wanted to run through kenny on half baked!

C-diff is disgusting. You can walk onto a unit and smell it. The "product" has a distinct odor. It is highly contageous and I always hated taking care of patients who had it. You have to gown and glove for constant contact with them. Patient is usually on contact precautions.

Basically it's Montezuma's Revenge on steroids.  Fantastic.  "Stool transplants" as a cure?  How horrible.

I saw masks being worn all over the place at UAMS today.  Not those regular ones either

With it being Flu season, you will see those masks everywhere.

When I work in the ER, I wear a mask all night long. Don't care if I am seeing a respiratory infection or Knee scrape. I don't want to bring none of that mess home. Heck I had a Upper respiratory infection and was terrified of the flu. That stuff is doing some damaging stuff to people our age. I could tell people some HORROR stories from what I have seen this year.

Funny thing is, I am pocketing a whole bunch of the masks tonight for the wife and I for the cruise ship for precautions HA

Holy moly.  I saw the wind take the back end of a car and lift it up today.  Didn't move it but picked that sucker straight up for a second and put it down.

I almost couldn't open my door to my car the wind was pushing it so hard.  And evidently a tornado warning went off right as Marion schools let out. 

Glad today is over.   I hate to even say this but I would rather have ice than tornadic activity.  Any day!

Well this one was a wife/hubby deal. We make sure to do two a vacations a year, one for us and one with the little one. Thinking about Pensacola this August.

Try the Domican Republic, took this trip a few years ago and loved it.  Beaches every day all day and unbelievable water, and great drinks!  Cruises are great and will do another one as well but there is a sense of confinement once you have been to an island on an all inclusive trip.  Can't beat it!!!

Open Cabinet Doors under sinks - so room air circulates.
Leave faucets trickling

Switch thermostat to Emergency Heat, during freezing icy conditions.  Switch back to Auto, after everything has thawed out.

Crush Pecan Shells or throw cat litter on steps and sidewalks.

Throw a tarp or something over car windshield.

Try to drive without using brakes.

Put sleeping bags, heavy coats, warm walking shoes in backseat of car.

Lawty!!!!!!    My front door is frozen shut.  I can get out another way!!   Clinic is closed due to low census.  But we have to either not get paid or use our PTO. 

I need a beach badly!!   

I will try to be positive and look at this as a good day to organize!!!

Must be better than they used to be...cause I wouldn't say looking like an orange is a good thing?

Of course I went to school with some girls that would hit 2, 3 or sometimes 4 tanning bed places a day....cause apparently burning like a lobster was a good thing?

My ex's step-mom owned a salon that did spray tans. She has like the heavy duty, professional equipment. They decided to do tans in one of the half baths. It is permanently tan.

Stupid weather!  Blah!



Hey guys.......I never used to spray tan.  Ever.   I have always gotten a tan from the sun and not those tanning beds because I thought you looked orange like HF posted BUT they have improved the look and smell of spray tans considerably.   I just spray tan until it's hot enough to lay outside(old and crazy :) ) ...however, with all the skin cancer rates that are increasing it's safer to sunless tan....and young girls and guys need to heed the warnings by Dermatology Centers.   Skin Cancer is scary!   A real tan is not worth it.   Plus,  using sun screen cuts down on wrinkles later!

Wore shorts and did some work out in the yard Saturday and went for a nice mile long walk to boot.  It was 80 degrees at 5 pm and 40 degrees by 9pm then it was 32 by 10:30 pm.  We got heavy frezzing rain then sleet so we had 10am start to school today.  Wind chill was in the single degits this morning.

Woke up this morning with at least 3" of ice/sleet and 2" of snow on the ground.  Thank goodness of the snow for traction.  Main roads in Harrison looked clear due to hwy dept working around the clock.  Side roads are a different story.  Depends on temps these next few days to see if what refreezes especially for East/West teams trying to get to the basketball playoffs this week.  Drive careful out there.

Have any of you ever looked up the Weather History for where you live on Weather.Org?   It's an interesting website.

Also, I couldn't believe that it's not been the coldest winter as opposed to others.   It certainly seems like it should be.  Maybe they will re-adjust their findings when spring begins.

Well I have decided if I could have today I would have gotten out of my car and beat the holy smoke out of a few people.

Right on my bumper!!!    I did some hand waving and they backed off.

Good grief.  Cooking shrimp, red beans and rice and beignets.  That should calm me down.

Well if you subscribe to the Justin Wilson school of cooking:  "a little wine for the shrimps, a little wine for the cook."

My dad used to watch him all the time....all I can remember is his accent and a few things lol...


"liddle bet o whyne, liddle bet mo whyne, heck, put it all in!"...Spelled out about the way I remember him saying it lol

She is a good meteorologist.    I always wanted to be a weather girl.   

I'm fond of the weather girls from Telemundo, Univision, etc.

Isn't he the sweetest?!    Seven is very kind.  :)   He needs Double Brownie Points!


Your 5'11? And Blonde?    I bet you are very pretty.   I'm around 5'8... And I'm aging gracefully too.  That's fine with me.  I don't look like those girls either!! :)   I just try to be nice! :)

Today was beautiful!  I'm so ready for tomorrow....oh how I have missed the sunshine!!! :)

While enjoying this beautiful weather, I now nominate seven as best poster of the year.

I think for me hating cold weather I with held a lot of my distress over this horrid, horrid, horrid, horrid, horrid, horrid and I say again HORRID winter weather.
