The Other Arizona: (51" Of Snow In A Single Storm...)

Waterfall & golf course in ArizonaThere is another Arizona.

When I post, you're used to seeing photos like this one of sunny, warm, Tucson.  We have 300 + days of sunshine in this little corner of the world.

But there's another Arizona.

I was on the phone today with Deanne Olivas, REALTOR in Gilbert, AZ.  (Active Rain at work ~ she's selling houses and I'm funding loans.)  

During our conversation, Deanne asked if I had been on her blog today.

I hadn't, but while we were on the phone, I looked it up. 

Deanne's in the "Other Arizona."

You have to know that Deanne and her family are vacationing at the moment in Arizona's White Mountains. 

That mountain range has its name for a reason; you're not going to be thinking "Arizona" when you click the link to The Other Arizona.

WHAT?  You expected to see 51 inches of snow on my blog?  I don't think so...  :)

Mike,

I've lived in both Arizonas.  They both are beautiful!

LOL. Little stinker! OK. I'm going to click that link now. Your post sounds like the one I posted when we had snow in Daytona Beach a few weeks ago. I had to post a picture of the tiny, sad little snowman that someone made. LOL!

Mike - I'm done with snow right now. It's snowing today, and we have rarely had more than 1 inch in a year, but this year it's snowed several times for several inches. The roads turn to ice really quick here because the temperature gets above freezing just long enough to melt some of it, and then it freezes back.

I call it global cooling, and humans had nothing to do with it.

Larry,

I said much the same thing to my Darlin' this morning when we turned on the TV and see that half the nation is shut down because of snow.  Thanks for commenting...twice!  LOL

Vegas Bob,

Thanks for saying so.  Coming from you, that's high praise!

Mike,

It's nice to have the best of both worlds right at your doorstep....in fact, I think that's an ideal place to live.

Beautiful photo!
