If that is not a good storm...what is?
It's a good storm when everyone gets a good rain, not just you.

On second thought, it is a good storm when I get beaucoup rain. I don't really care what anyone else gets. You probably use the same yardstick.

For real, over 12" of snow already in Flagstaff as of over an hour ago with heavy snow falling and over and inch already at Sky Harbor, LOL, which I believe is a distance from HX Guy...

They are also expecting to "halt departing flights" out of Sky Harbor at 1 or 2 pm due to wind and radar echos signaling dangerous weather moving in...

I once landed in SLC in the middle of a blizzard. Surely they can land flights at Sky Harbor for a little rain. Give me a break

I do, too. I'm feeling the lack of sunshine emotionally. I know that sounds dumb, but I've been feeling a little blue these last few days--and I think it's because of the weather.

Those totals are miniscule compared to what we were baited with. We'll have to see about the airport. They close it down for cloudy days here so that really means nothing. Bust!

Well, it's not just me. Take a look at the whole Phoenix Metro area...everyone has been getting decent amounts of rain.

It's OK to have a little cloudiness if we get some rain, but this storm is way overrated. Let's get the sun back.

Me too. Everytime it's cloudy or rainy I get cranky. I usually get a headache too, not yet. Probably shouldn't have said anything.
