Snow in Central Arizona

If the storm that just passed through Phoenix is headed your way, batten down the hatches.

Wow! I bet that's a rare sight!
Sure is pretty and a little odd-looking, too!

We're already getting a drop in temperature and strong gusty winds here in New Mexico.

Battening down the hatches,

We are supposed to get snow this afternoon and overnight. Just got home from tucking the ponies into their blankets, actually!

Did it snow at your house too? We couldn't believe it was actually snowing at our house! It usually only snows up on the mountain. The news said the snow level was at 3000ft-but we're only at about 1600 here. We were planning on heading up to the arabian horse show today, but decided it was way too cold.

lilyrose - It might have snowed at my house, because I wasn't really watching outside, but nothing stuck to the ground if it did.

Your photos are beautiful. I bet that is a rare sight!

I hear that we are supposed to get snow at home... 6-8" of it! Hooray! I wish I was there. I love snowstorms!

We've got 3" on the ground here in New Mexico, and the snow is still falling heavily.

Hatches are battened down!

My husband's usual half hour commute took nearly an hour and the last couple of miles had white out conditions. The news showed snow covering Scottsdale during the day.

Whoa , that's stormy beautiful! Treacherous, but gorgeous on your mountains.

How you guys get to feeling better too. I'm going into work later...if I can keep myself from hacking
The clearing of the forests it's supposed to be managed...but, mostly it seems not to be. They do replant, but I won't be riding those places in 30 years!

I was hoping you had gotten some pic's. That seemed to have traveled straight up US60. Once off the freeway and over the CAP, clear as a bell.

Sleet, hail and a white dusting on the mountains is not really all that unusual, but because everyone thinks of Phoenix in July and 110+ temps- this is just unheard of? Not hardly folks.

According to the news this storm was unusual since it blanketed the valleys in some places and not just the mountains. It's all every news channel talked about for each half hour segment. We had the ground around our house covered with snow during the night and it's been sliding off the roof of the barn all morning.

The hills are very pretty dusted with powdered sugar!
