The powerful winter storm that swept through the nation’s middle on Wednesday dumped record snowfall in Arkansas, where ice and ten inches of snow snapped power poles and dropped lines.

Some of the nearly 200,000 people who lost power could be without it for as long as a week, said the state’s largest utility, Entergy Arkansas.

Snow hadn’t fallen in Little Rock on Christmas since 1926, but the capital ended Tuesday with 10.3 inches of it.

As the storm, blamed for 12 deaths,  moved Northeast, forecasts called for a foot or more snow in some locations.

  1. Living here in Arkansas I can assure you that our state was ill prepared. And to top it off, the spokesperson for Entergy Arkansas said during a public interview that Entergy Arkansas was given little warning about the true power of this storm. I couldn’t help but think that the global warming alarmists were under reporting the potential impact, hoping it wouldn’t be as strong as it appeared to be.

    Every year they seem to get some snow there, but getting nearly a foot is legendary. Going backcountry off piste would have been something to write home about.
