Those white flecks in the air? That is snow, my friends. In Arizona, where the sun shines well over 300 days a year.
Now, while that snowburst . . and most of the day . . rain was occurring, human beings were outside walking the streets and sidewalks. With their dogs! In freezing (well, it seemed freezing to me) and extremely inclement weather.
And where were our two cats during this weather disaster?
Sharing the foot of a bed for their warm afternoon nap. That's where. I rest my case.
By the way, a little later I (stupid human that I am) ventured outside to take a photo of the snow-covered mountains and found, to my surprise, a snowbow. That's like a rainbow and it's just barely visible at the left of this picture.
