SNOWFALL! ...3 days...28 inches +
Here in the "Valley of the Sun"...where I live...
we received much needed rainfall from this storm front
the high country is delirious with joy
since this significant weather system
dropped several feet of fresh powder on the peaks...
Actually, the Grand Canyon recorded over a foot of snow!
I can only imagine how stunning that must look!
As far as winter sports go here in AZ...
Sunrise Ski area in the White mountains to the east of Phoenix
While the Arizona Snow Bowl
near Flagstaff to the north
will open Saturday.
What a Christmas wish come true
for those who ski, snow board or snowshoe!
I, on the other hand,
think I may just have to go to the pool before the weekend is over...
temps in the valley are to rebound back into the 60's
since pool water temp has been 83 degrees all week
I think that should feel just about right.
Ahhh...yes! This will be a good plan.
"Begin doing what you want to do now.
We are not living in eternity.
We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake..."
