Snow Day in Tucson

20 Feb

It doesn’t usually snow in Tucson. Though the mountains around the city often get a dusting of the white stuff, the city itself is usually too low in altitude and too high in temperature to see anything but rain. However today we had a rather unexpected (as in, none of us really expected to see any snow), respectable snowfall. Even though nothing stuck, it was a real treat to see snow falling in the desert for a bit.
