Hell Has Officially Frozen Over

While we only saw what I would guess to be flurries in our backyard, Mesa, which is west of us here in the valley, got hit with what the meteorologists are calling a thundersnow, where it was apparently cold enough aloft for snow to fall in 40 degree weather, and heavy enough to actually accumulate briefly on the ground.

Below are three pictures I borrowed from the following article about this freak storm, at

These were all taken, according to the article, from people living in northeast Mesa, maybe
fifteen minutes from us.

They're forecasting 2-3 inches of snow in Tucson, and it continues to pile up in the mountains, which can only be good news for our water supply come this spring/summer.
