Wild, Windy, Wintery Weather

December 20th, 2012 by

Wednesday, afternoon temperatures were in the mid-70’s.

Now, they’re below 50 degrees.

Earlier this afternoon, a strong wind, out of the south ripped the metal roof of of this Midway Route home, near Wilson Mill Road.  No one was at home at the time.  The only other damage was a tree that was blown down.

Tonight, please take care of your pets, plants, and pipes, as overnight lows are forecast to drop into the 20’s.

That, my friends, is Southeast Arkansas weather.
