Might opt for something by J. A. Jance since most of her stories are set in Bisbee, AZ and then I can vicariously enjoy the heat.
Just wanted to say I enjoy J.A. Jance's books too. She also has a series that's basically set in Yavapai County and includes Sedona and Prescott. Those books cover places I actually KNOW. I love her Southern AZ books too, since I've also lived there, and have learned to like the ones she writes about the detective in Seattle.

We would take it here! We sure do need it. In my whole life I can only remember one really bad storm here. I think it was 1967 and we actually got about three feet of the stuff. My dad, granddad, uncles and brothers were kept hopping keeping the roofs shoveled, etc.. Nobody did much else for a few days! So, it's a very very rare thing here but it CAN happen.

Zugor, I feel your pain, last week we had about 17 inches.

Thanks, Brat, at least you endured some before getting to AZ.

Back to the NWS site to follow the horror.....

LOL...I was born in AZ, hence my member name. However, I've lived in No. ID, MI and AK so I'm no stranger to long cold winters. I do love AZ though and am happy to live here.

Wow I'll bet those winters were rough!

Supposedly only getting three inches of snow, I will take that willingly!

It's been snowing for 5 hours now and I just took a measurement and we're up to 4 inches of light powder so far. I've been out 3 times to broom clear the steps from the covered back porch to the back yard so that the old dogs will be able to make it down those steps.

Latest prediction from the National Weather Service out of Blacksburg is for 12 - 18 inches with possibly higher amounts in some locations.

We have power and it is not looking like this area will have much if any outages so that is one good thing about this storm.

I was talking to my sister yesterday who lives there.
She's off and didn't plan to leave the house and was stocked up after reading about Atlanta.

So is the South going to now have brutal summers AND brutal winters?

This winter could be a fluke (in the South) but if it isn't....

We're supposed to get 4 - 6 inches of snow here in Philly. I salted the sidewalk.

I was sorry to hear of the death of Shirley Temple. Her movies as a little girl were just a joy to watch.
