I know that the city-data site says 20 inches in Jan. (or something like that) I am wondering if this is acurate? Any information on weather and the school disrict would be much appreciated.

Especially in the drought years, snow up north, especially as far south as Prescott, is variable. 20 inches is not the norm for January, or even for a whole winter, much of the time. The snow level does not get down that far as often as it does in the White Mountains to the east or in Flagstaff, so when it does snow, it doesn't last long.

That seems high, based on recent years, but what they get at any given time melts quickly.

Question California Snow

Hey Roxi Mac,
Sounds like you lived in my neck of the woods, San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. That January 2010 storm that you Prescotter's are moaning about dumped 4 1/2 feet of snow in my front yard with 8 foot berms on the sides of the street. My car door locks were frozen shut and my Jeep Cherokee looked like a giant snowball. I had snow up to the side door windows. I own two snow shovels.

I'm thinking of moving to the Prescott area. I still want my 4 seasons but I'd like a milder winter. I'm thinking of buying a manufactured home and put it on a 1 acre lot and keep it under $80k...any ideas for location?

Also my hubby is a professional musician by playing gigs and giving lessons. What are his chances of finding employment there?

The NYC area has had about 55" of snow so far this year, the normal is about 35" and it's supposed to snow again Monday night.

So do I bring my snowblower when I move to Prescott?
