We're still on the warm side of this cold front coming in. It was 75 here at noon while only 27 Wichita Ks.

Right now it's 68 here in Little Rock but in Fayetteville (just 100 miles north of us) it's 34, a full 34 degree drop. We've got all kinds of tornado watches and warnings north of us but hopefully none of that is coming this way.

Behind this they are predicting 2 days of Sleet, Freezing Rain and Snow. We are expecting as much as an inch of ice to hit the streets before the snow even starts falling (that is if we even get any snow, it could be an all-ice event).

I had to giggle at the topic "Stranded on a tropical island". We're about to be stranded in a winter wonderland.

Thanks for the prayers. It's gone on past us now. It spat a little rain (not much at that) and then headed on. Everything north of us got a pounding tonight though, especially St. Louis and the Southern and Central Missouri area.

Now I'm more worried about the ice. :)

I think we're getting the northen edge of the same stor as Raven. Last night it was 55 - this morning it's 25, with 25-45mph wind gusts...

And it was kind enough to rain very heavily while it was 55, so everything was nice and wet when all the temps dropped. Gotta love ice! At least tomorrow they're saying that we can look forward to a balmy 18 degrees!

The weather here reminds me of a scene from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
