The same storm system that coated parts north with ice and snow left most of Arkansas with an abundance of rain. Ponds and lakes shrunken by up to three years of drought found themselves overflowing. The National Weather Service painted the state with flood and severe thunderstorm warnings and a couple of twisters were reported.
Here in the steep valleys of the eastern Ouachita Mountains water ran off fast, creating impromptu falls and rapids. (After spending about an hour in the rain shooting, little rivulets were falling off me too!)
