December 2012 Blizzard

Marion and Crittenden County was hit with a blizzard during the night on Dec. 25th and early the morning of the 26th.  Snow and the strong winds made for hazzard driving.  By Thursday morning and afternoon most of the main highway and streets were clear.  Snow fall was anywhere from 4-8 inches depending on where you lived and how the wind blew.

It did make for some pretty and peaceful looking scenes on some of historical homes located around the post office on Carlisle Street and College Street.

The Barbara and Rip Wheeler home looked like a post card with the snow on their lawn and shrubs.

Just around the corner on College Street the Victorian home of Pat and Naomi Jamison brought back memories of the old Christmas Cards with the  Christmas decorations and the snow on everything.

The Jamison's garden was also a lovely sight with the snow.  It is beautiful in any season.
