Actual snow in the desert...

Only about 2 inches but that's a lot for us. We may have more this weekend.

Looks like you've got about as much as we've got up here in the frosty north.

Why aren't you out there playing in it?

I drove it to work today (nothing exciting). If I had a fun (legal) place to go I'd be there in a heartbeat!!

Mike, how much snow did you get in San Angelo? It looks like you guys are getting more than we are.

Look, you have trees too. And houses. Man, the desert sure has changed.

I sure wish we would get some snow. It just needs to be a little dusting and these southerners will panic and close eveything down for three days.

Those trees didn't just grow there on their own. And it cost a lot of money every year just to keep them alive!

We are finally getting snow in Northern PA. It is just weird that there is just as much snow in the desert than there is here.

Just making sure that you Texans don't get some sort of special snow I don't know about. Course, in Colorado, we didn't call that snow. It weren't snow 'til it drifted to the eaves.

Scout, I've kind of got you beat bro. Had snow fluries in my front yard yesterday for about 15 minutes. I've lived in Phoenix for 6 years now and this is the first time I've seen a flake in town.

We had heavy snow here Saturday about 1:00 in the afternoon then by 2:30 there wasn't a cloud in the sky and it was 50 degrees.
