As you may or may not know, Arkansas had a huge snowstorm this past December. Named Storm Euclid, it produced a good bit of beautiful, white, powdery snow, but the devastating effects left many without power, and unable to enjoy the true winter beauty.
Here’s a few facts about Storm Euclid:
- Record snowiest Christmas Day (9″); snowiest single day since Jan. 6, 1988 (we actually had 12-15″ here in Benton & Hot Springs)
- Arkansas First recorded blizzard conditions
- First White Christmas in Arkansas Since the 1920s!!!
- Over 200,000 people left without power
We too lost power. It was not too bad. We were out for a few days. Luckily we had a gas stove and gas water heater. Aside from the inconvenience of no light at night, it wasn’t much. We didn’t lose any food either. I simply packed it in a cooler and burried all the frozen stuff in the foot+ of snow outside.
We did decide to take a drive out HWY 298 towards Hot Springs/ Hot Springs Village at sunset one night.
Here’s what I came up with in my first landscape photos. My first image listed here was featured on Capture Arkansas.
