Fortunately, we had a big umbrella with us so we walked home "Under the Big Umbrella" just like Jo and Professor March in Little Women!!! We do not get to do this very often in Arizona!

Yes, the storm was massive. Bisbee was predicted 18". Of course it's a higher elevation than here. We're at 4400 feet.


Attachment 208455

Was already melting when I took this yesterday around 1 pm. This is from my balcony looking northwest at the Whetstones. I've never seen so much snow on these as they're not as tall as the Huachucas.

This is looking southwest at the Huachucas. The vertical white splotches are melting snow dripping from my balcony roof

I grew up in the Detroit area. My DH and I moved to AZ in the early 90s. I don't miss the humidity at all! Sometimes I miss snow, but we get enough here to take care of that. And this last storm reminded me what a pain a bunch of persistent snow can be.

I'll say one thing for Detroit, they did a good job of keeping the freeways and main roads open after a big snow. Not too bad in the neighborhoods either. I lived on the border of Dearborn and had to drive just beyond downtown Detroit to work. I don't remember missing much, if any, work because of the roads.


I've lived other places known for lots of snow too, like Alaska and No. Idaho, and I'll take an AZ 'blizzard' any day over those places! lol

Deelighted - I'd like to see your photos, but they are not opening. I get this message:

Weird, those also disappeared from my attachments too, but I did have problems loading them on that day (image too big, then file size too big). Trying again:

^ Thanks. Only a tiny bit of snow left on the Huachucas. With temps in the 70s today and rest of week, there won't be any left for long.

I haven't been home for close to a week-- but we hear from our neighbors and general news that the Philly area is getting its share and then some! So no pix as yet. Anyone have to share to we can gloat for the next few days here in sunny Fl?
