Fresh Snow

We got a few inches of snow over the weekend and I caught a photo of this "mini-drift" on the railing of our deck. Although many people think Arizona is only hot, dry desert, there are actually many parts of it that are high enough in elevation that they get cold temps and a decent amount of snow. Flagstaff is one of those parts. For example, in 2004, the year we moved here, we got somewhere around 39 inches of snow in 48 hours in late October.

You are right, location stereotypes are difficult to explain. A lot of people think MN fto be a cold snowy tundra year round. Rather hard to believe one part of AZ is in the 70's, the other part is snowy.

Have fun shoveling! ;)
