Sometimes it rains, sometimes it snows in Phoenix Arizona...

I got to cross off another item on my 21 before 22 list today.  "See snow".  Now, technically I have seen snow before (it snowed years ago in Scottsdale but only for moments), and honestly when I put that on the list I was thinking along the lines of honest-to-goodness SNOW, but today was an interesting day for weather and I'm going to honor it.

It has, in the last twenty-four hours, rained, hailed, and snowed.  All in my backyard, in Phoenix.  Alas, I don't have photos of the snow, but I assure you it happened. Google it.  The snow stuck in some areas, and you'll see a nice white blanket that I'm sure has melted by now. 
Now, for those of you from climate-ly rational areas of the world where you get four seasons this may seem like a silly post, but I assure you this is fascinating to me.  I mean, it was ninety degrees just a few weeks ago.  So, this is really something.  We sure don't get days like this often, and the weather decided to give us a little taste of everything today.

So here's to an incredibly strange day for weather in Phoenix, and SNOW.


  1. I've been hearing about that! That's crazy!

  2. Congrats on the snow! I remember the first day I say it hear in Minnesota -- transformative.

    UGH, today has not been my day.

  4. I can't believe I missed this!

  5. Ahhhh that's amazing, snow in Scottsdale?? I have family that lives there, so exciting!! Glad you got to cross that off your list!

    I wonder if it will ever snow in LA :)

  6. Just stumbled upon your blog and I am smitten! I would absolutely jump for joy if you came over and said hi! We could totally be friends- loved this post. Also, I sound like a stalker FREAK, but I promise I'm pretty normal. Side note: Sometimes I break promises. Ha! XO


Thanks for taking the time to say hello <3
