It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

...or the end of days!

This was the view from my window this afternoon. When this happens in the desert, we pretty much assume that in an hour it will all be gone. Not today.

It just kept falling. And falling. And falling.

Desert landscape ala mode!

Our 'very green' backyard is now green and white!
And red and white!

There are no snow plows or sand trucks in the desert and usually no need for them. When the need arises, we just have to wait until it passes.

The economy will get a boost, since the airport is closed. Room occupancy will be up!! Lets just hope the tourists did not lose all their money, just yet.

I am predicting masses of absenteeism at work tomorrow. Chaos reigns when snow falls here!

Well, I guess you will just have to bear with it!! Not likely it will last until Christmas. Love, WS (We are to have freezing rain this afternoon. Hope it waits until I get off work!)

Well. And you thought you wouldn't need an all wheel drive truck!
