Snow Was Not in the Forecast

This is what we woke up to today.

We are not happy campers.  I'm writing this at 10:22 (mountain) and it's snowing harder.

Note the lack of any mountains in the background.

It will be interesting to see which plants survive. 

5:00 pm (mountain) Update to Post:  It's hailing like hell!  What's next?  A plague of locusts?


  1. This is quite the learning curve for you!

  2. We were snowed on in Tucson at Gilbert Ray on Feb 27, 2011 so I guess this isn't unheard of, just not expected. Hope the plants make it!

  3. Definitely a strange cold winter. No snow for us but rain and more rain. I see a bright light in the sky right now so I have hope.

  4. My forecast said snow all day, I just didn't believe it. Unfortunately, the weather guessers were correct THIS time. You have to admit it WAS beautiful!! About the only thing I'll lose is some lantana. Too bad I can't add the oleanders to that list. Even my palm trees have survived previous snow ... they just look a tad bit rough.
