It had been a few years since I seen snow which was normal. This year was going to be different. My husband won a contest for an all expense paid trip to a Montana ranch. This trip would be in mid January and in the dead of winter. We were a bit worried because we didn't have heavy winter clothes and might freeze our asses off. We found out when we got there they have provided us with all the clothing we needed to keep warm as part of the winners package. (Us and 100 other couples.) Needless to say there was snow on the ground everywhere and the day before we had to leave, it snowed even more. Breathing was difficult but the scenery was beautiful. I didn't know it but more snow was in my future for 2011.
Sharon and I planned a trip to Vulture Mine and then Prescott at the end of January. We booked a room at a haunted hotel in Prescott and did some experiments to draw out the ghosts. The next day, we awoke to it snowing. We became giddy girls, grabbed our cameras, and ran outside the hotel to take pictures. We were worried the ride home might be difficult, but the snow just stayed in Prescott. This was the second time seeing it snow in one year, but that wasn't it.
Back at home, we were experiencing freeze warnings. This was not normal to have these warnings in the big ol' desert city, but the temps did drop to the teens. It was so cold, it snowed on the mountains near my house. Score, more snow. I grabbed my camera and took off in my car to take pictures of this rare site. My goodness, this has turned out to be a snowy year for me and it wasn't over yet.
