Snow in Scottsdale!!

Yesterday was startlingly strange weather.  There was snow in Scottsdale!  That's right.  Snow!

Yesterday I had a meeting in the middle of the day.  It was 67 degrees (19 C.).  While I drove home, within about 30 minutes the temperature dropped to 47 degrees (8 C.).  A few minutes later it started to snow.

As you can see in this photo of my back yard, the snow actually stuck to the ground -- for about 10 minutes.

I am sure that all of the people out here on vacation at the swimming pools of the resorts and playing golf were quite stunned, as were we locals.  We see snow fall in the Valley may once every 10 years or so.  It is warm enough to have nice green grass, which provides an unusual contrast for bits of snow.

I said yesterday that I would show a different photo today, but I changed my plans due to this  bizarre weather event.

We are showing some more photos of Africa this week on our  Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Pretty crazy. A golf event near Tucson was postponed because of snow, too.

Remarkable.

I'm so glad you captured this. I missed it entirely. I didn't know it had snowed until I heard it on the radio.

I'm so glad you were able to get a picture of the snow to post. It looks like you got more snow than we did!

Wow! This is really neat. You had to get a picture quickly before it melted.

Better hurry to catch every snow possible on camera as long as it lasts!
