Wintry Blast Today

Brrr… It’s cold! It was just a couple of weeks ago that we were basking in above normal temperatures in the mid-80s. This morning, it was only 34F degrees here.

Above is a picture of yesterday’s lingering storm including snow in the mountains. We even heard thunder once!

Today dawned mostly clear. We need the power after several mostly cloudy days. It should get up into the low 50s.

 

 

Arizona History

Arizona, constituent state of the United States of America. Arizona is the sixth largest state in the country in terms of area. Its population has always been predominantly urban, particularly since the mid-20th century, when urban and suburban areas began growing rapidly at the expense of the countryside. Some scholars believe that the state’s name comes from a Basque phrase meaning “place of oaks,” while others attribute it to a Tohono O’odham (Papago) Indian phrase meaning “place of the young (or little) spring.” Arizona achieved statehood on February 14, 1912, the last of the 48 conterminous United States to be admitted to the union.

Winter in NW Arizona

Every once in a while, someone will say “Well, I like Arizona, but I need four seasons.” I have to laugh; we’re freezing today!

We awoke to a snow covered landscape today, and even at mid day there are still patches of snow everywhere.
