Snow in Scottsdale!!
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.
