But as I said to one of my North Dakota buddies yesterday, at least in Arizona it doesn't last long. A couple of hours later the sun was out and the snow was gone.
Incidentally I was watching a golf tournament that began today at Marana, just a bit north of Tucson in southern Arizona. It started out cold with the players wearing stocking caps and jackets. A bit later and as Jason Day put it, "First it started to rain, then it changed to sleet and then to snow." The rest of play was called off for the day as about two inches fell in less than an hour. Most of the golfers were incredulous and some of them had never seen snow before.
Just an average day in the deserts of Arizona.
