Snow Days

6 Mar

While we have had an incredibly mild winter in Tucson this year, we’ve been watching coverage of the storms hitting the rest of the country with sympathy. Although we wouldn’t have minded a snow day, we’re glad to have escaped the worst of the ice and snow. It’s hard to believe it ever snowed this much in Tucson (especially when we already hit 90 degrees in February), but check out this image from our Main Photograph Collection of the U of A Main Gate after a major snowstorm in 1922.

Seven inches of snow fell in Tucson on March 12, 1922. This photo shows the U of A gate covered in snowf. Main Photograph Collection, Photo #12928. As always, if you'd like to use or reproduce an image from this blog, please contact ahsref@azhs.gov for permissions.

For those of you in the cold, snowy weather: you can gloat when you’re having a reasonable summer and we’re enduring 120+ temperatures!
