    Arkansas Winter Weather


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     laurawest200 is visiting her parents in Benton, Arkansas, where they could hear limbs falling off the trees on Christmas night from the blizzard. ' The picture shows what we found when we ventured outside the house into the front yard on Wednesday morning. I am standing in the yard to take the photo. We very rarely have weather like this, so we were unprepared as to dressing appropriately. We were in our pajamas and had Wal-Mart sacks covering our tennis shoes to go outside!' She said her dad was more concerned about the tree, a magnolia he planted from seed more than 15 years ago. Her car, a 2010 PT Cruiser, emerged unscathed.

    Magnolia tree falls on PT Cruiser - after the limbs were cleared there was not a scratch on it! The heavy snow protected the car.
