Schools Out in Tucson! Snow Day!

It snowed in Tucson today.The local news had been trumpeting the forecast for two or three days.  Snow's coming. White flakes.  Temperature in the 40s all day.  It's not often that Tucson schools have a snow day, so we all thought we were pretty big stuff.

Idiots like me were stopped along the highways taking pictures.  Schoolkids were making people crazy at the mall.  Then I got home, and my Darlin' showed me a photo sent by a friend in Quebec.  Canada.  True north.

No snow day in Quebec!


The kids in Quebec didn't get a snow day!  Kinda puts things in perspective, doesn't it?!

Schedule a visit soon!  Call before you come.  We'll roll out the red carpet for you.

I have a friend in Tucson right now and I had to call we were at 62 today and he mentioned you had a cold spell but I'm sure it will be back to normal soon.

Nice photo Mike!  Aren't you glad we only have to wear our parkas 2 weeks out of the year?  (one week 'cuz its cold & 1 week just because we don't want to think we wasted our money!)

Snow is no less inspiring than the barren desert! It all depends on your perspective!

I like your slant on things.

It's the same with snow in Quebec, to them it's just not that much snow! "A!"

I've got alot of family in Quebec, don't know a one of them!

Mike, I can imagine how rare snow is for your area, and no, when something comes around like a blue moon, why not enjoy it...

The World Match Play in Golf is coming to Tucson (okay, Marana) in two weeks.  Look for our signature mild, sunny weather.  We enjoy precipitation in any form here in the desert.


I'll bet you did.  LOL!


I covered our key lime tree with a sheet tonight.  Our geraniums too.  I wonder if your relatives in Quebec have a computer?  They could read our blogs!  :)


Now there's a way to look at it!  Thanks for stopping by.


It won't take more than a day to warm up again.  We're forcasted to be in the 60's by noon tomorrow.

Shhh!  Mike, we have to be very careful how many people find out about Tucson, or they will all want to move there, and all the beautiful open desert space will end up filled with condos, malls and freeways.  :-)

MORNING MIKE!  Tucson was truly surrounded by a snowbowl yesterday - it's just beautiful wasn't it? ! -- Gabrielle

At least one, Luc Archambault does he sells his art through it. Unfortunately it's in French. There are others. Luc has talked with my first cousin Cindy, it took 4 generations to find a common Grand Father. All the North American Archambaults trace our selves back to Jacques Archambault who arivaed here in 1608 and traveled extensively in Canada and Michigan.

Just something else you didn't need to know before breakfast.

Hi Mike:

WOW!!!  Look at that mound of snow....

Mmmm.  We have a snow day with an inch of snow.  It has nothing to do with snow.  It is because of GRIDLOCK.

Trust me you do not want what your friends to the north of you got.  Stick with what you have, it's better that way!  ;-)

I love it when we get snow here in WNC. Just enough to be beautiful for a day or 2 and then it's gone!

Mike it was 76 here yesterday and sunny. I am loving it. There are a few trees starting to bloom and the buttercups are showing color. I love it!

Spring is sprung, the grass is riz.  I wonder where the birdies is.  :)


Me too!


I like what we have here!  :)


Gridlock?  What's that?


They don't have that much in New Jersey?!


That's some interesting stuff.  Now for a cup of coffee...


It was GREAT!


You're right.  Let's not tell.  :)

Mike - The more I read about Tucson, the more surprises I get.  I have always considered the area as hot desert, even in winter time.  I can imagine an occassional small amount of snow - but that's a ridiculous amount:-)

I remember the good old days, when I was a kid and yes we had snow days, because no one ever made it to the class room!
