Happy Valentine's Day!
Yes, we know all about that. But it is a very special day here in Arizona. It's our birthday!
No. Not mine. The state of Arizona's. The Grand Canyon State is 103 years old today.
And, yes, anyone reaching that age has a few lines in it's face.
But since it was the 48th state admitted to the Union, you can say it is still on the road to the future.
The most recent estimated population of Arizona is around 6.7 million. But roughly 4 million of those are located in the Greater Phoenix area. So there's still plenty of room.
Happy Birthday, Arizona!
