I've lived in the Phoenix area for over 15 years and had family here for some 35 years now. So through the years I've seen all kinds of different Phoenician weather.
BUT NEVER SNOW!!
Ok...to be fair the media is calling it graupel or a "soft hail". *
But to me...if it walks like a duck..............
And what we had here this evening...we would've called snow when I was growing up in Colorado.
Granted, there wasn't much...what my mom woulda called "just a skiff".
But I snapped a few pics as a reminder...and I'll let you decide for yourself what to call it. : )
Keep in mind as you're looking at theses images that Phoenix is located in the Sonoran Desert often records temperatures of 114 degrees!

"Snow" sticking to cars and lawns:
* A few years ago the main-stream media breathlessly, and unanimously reported a "man" gave birth to a child. So maybe they aren't always the best source of truth and information.
Thanks as always for stopping by!
