2019 Winter in Arizona

Last winter in Arizona, we didn't have much of a winter. The towns and cities in the northern and eastern part of the state didn't get much snow. In the Phoenix, the weather was in the 70s for at least three months throughout winter. Although we enjoyed having our windows open, it sucked for my hubby's AC business.

This winter however feels like winter. The northern and eastern parts of the state have been getting so much snow that some of the highways had to be closed. Our ski resorts are loving it. In the Phoenix area, we had lots of rain and chilly weather. Some of the cities on the outskirts of Phoenix got snow. I even heard that Phoenix got some snow flurries but it didn't stick. Phoenix also experienced heavy fog.

Sharon and I decided to head back to a couple of abandoned places we haven't seen in a couple of years this past weekend. I will share pictures of what we saw in later posts. On the way back home, we were on a highway where we could see mountains from far away. We were struck by the rare white covered mountains and at first thought the sun light was making them appear white. We finally realized that is was snow covering the mountains. This is a site we haven't seen in a long time. We could even seen the Superstition Mountains in the background covered with snow. Along with seeing the snow covered mountains, the desert was green and in some areas had water. Another uncommon desert sighting that we enjoyed seeing.
