Doesn't this just take your breath away? It surely does mine! My beloved Superstitions completely covered in snow. A friend who has lived in this area for 30 years claims this has never happened in her time here...another gift to us from the gods. The lower slopes from the center and on to the right side of this photo are densely covered with saguaro cacti...I wish we had been able to get closer shots of that but we were running out of time.
Here is another favorite shot from this morning. I love the contrast of the cactus covered desert in front of the snow covered mountains.
I had PT at 2:00 and an appointment for a haircut at 4:00 near the kids' house so we went by there after to hang out and visit with them. We headed home before 7:00 and were shocked again to discover snowy slush on the freeway and a couple of spinouts as we neared Apache Junction. At home we were treated to snow and slush. As I posted on FB, I thought we were
"going where the sun keeps shining
Thru' the pouring rain,
Going where the weather suits my clothes" [name that song]
but this weather certainly doesn't suit my shoes! And I still cannot wear normal shoes on my swollen right foot. Ah yes, when we got home this evening: snow on the table and on Rich's bike; deep slush on our patio mat...just look how deep on Rich's footprints; and snow around the tree behind our motorhome!
With little snow back home this winter, we may have seen more of it here today than if we had stayed in Illinois!
