Tucson Snowstorm

Tucson snowstorm 2013

Tuesday night an emergency alert alarm went off on my iPhone informing me of severe winter weather conditions and possible blizzard in Tucson. I kind of laughed as it was not that cold. It was still in the 60s.

We joked about it until the next morning about 11 am the flurries began until we had a bona fide snowstorm with some minor accumulations which are STILL on the ground almost 24 hours later and the Santa Catalina mountains are completely snow covered right down to the valley floor. I’ve never seen anything like this! And I moved to Arizona to escape the cold?
