3. It snowed in Vegas yesterday too.

And just as it was gone by the end of the day in Vegas, I'm betting it didn't last the day in Tucson either.

7. I hope we get more tonight

Itís been maybe 10 years since we got accumulation that lasted more than an hour in town. It would be cool to wake up to that but not to drive. Rain means go extra slow, snow means go extra fast.

We actually get a lot more snow than people realize but normally it is well behaved and stays on the mountains.

22. Yeah, that was far north Scottsdale at a higher elevation

Central Scottsdale only had the small hail and a lot of rain. Our lakes and reservoirs have been several feet below normal, hope this helps a little. BRING IT ON!

21. When I worked in SF I remember years when Tahoe ski resorts...

...had a 50 foot base.

That means 50 feet of packed snow, with powder on top.

There were years I went there in the winter & drove on roads that were like driving through canyons of snow, piled several stories high.

I laughed when cities were shut down with 8-10 inches of snow, when Tahoe got 5-6 feet of snow the same day, & they soldiered on.

And they seem to be the ones freaking out because this isn't what they signed up for.

27. That's awesome good for TPD.

This has been a great winter...we actually had a winter season here this year. It started cooling off around Halloween and has lasted thru February. Last few years it was still 80-90 on Thanksgiving and we hit high 80ís by Feb. I am very much enjoying it because it will be 110į again soon enough.
