Greta, my dear MIL, always giggles that we in Arizona find snow to be newsworthy. When one is in Minnesota, with a high of -14 and 10' of snow on the ground on any given day, I can understand why a few flurries are not exactly something that needs to be splashed across every newspaper in town.

But here in Arizona, at least on the heat-island that is Maricopa County, snow is a rarity and will certainly make the top news story at 10pm for at least a day or two.

It also validates all of us who are transplants in our fear that we have become completely thin-blooded and risk turning to stone if the temperature drops below 40*. It's not that we are merely wimpy, nor have we abandoned the hearty constitution of our ancestors or done them shame... it really WAS cold!!

Here is proof...
