Snow Day

Yesterday marked the end of 143 days of no rain in the Greater Phoenix Area (Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa). Not only did it rain all day but it actually snowed in North Scottsdale. Now, snow is no big deal for most of you out there but it generally does not snow in Scottsdale, Arizona. Yes, we'll get some snow capped moutains here and there but very rarely would you see the mountains covered in snow like this.

By Wednesday- Thursday, the temperature is supposed to be back to the normal 75 to 78 degrees.

Beautiful!!! Snow capped mountians with the desert in the foreground... It has been a whiteout snow day here in SLC... but the warm will come and the snow will melt.... So much for the uncertain Spring!!!

That is a beautiful view! It was unseasonably warm here in NJ this weekend (close to 70 degrees) but we should be back to snowy like weather by the end of the week. I am so ready for spring.

Awww how nice. It makes me homesick for Phoenix. I miss my mountains there.
