Storm of the Decade

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Lake of the Ozarks

Well, Thursday night, after hearing for days to be prepared (we hear it every year), the worst winter storm to hit the lake in over 10 years finally arrived. No one really expected it to happen.

It started at our house in Four Seasons with 3 to 4 inches of sleet. That eventually turned to snow and snow and more snow. Our driveway had 14 inches of the white stuff!

The main roads are now, Saturday night, mostly clear. The rest are slowly being worked on. All that sleet led to an icey base for the snow and makes it hard to get off.

Unfortunately, many of the large boat docks around the lake weren't built to withstand this much sleet and snow and have collapsed on the boats. Port Arrowhead, Mungenast, Palisades Yacht Club, and many more, incluing condominium docks had some amounts of damage.

Let's hope it is another 10 years before we get this much snow again.

That reminds me of when we lived in Omaha, Nebraska.  I do not miss having to clean up after the snow or driving in it.  I miss the stillness and quiet of a snowstorm.

Donna,.

Thank you for the info.  We have a small weekend home and have been notified that our dock is under water.  We have been part of the lake for forty years and are concerned with what is going on locally.  Trying to find any updates regarding winter storm updates has been difficult. Again thank you and stay safe and warm.
