Icy Afternoon

The peaks of the Santa Catalinas were covered by clouds for most of the previous night and all day long. Combine the humid conditions with below freezing temperatures and and high winds and Rime ice forms on most upwind surfaces. These trees are just outside the 60" dome on Mt. Lemmon and their needles are covered with Rime. On a clear day you can see Mt. Bigelow behind these trees. Instead, there is nothing but the gray of the clouds and snow flurries.

Not something you see everyday in your neck-of-the-woods!

I woke up to snow this morning!! Not enough to make school late though.

Last fall I joked to some of the people I work with that there wouldn't be any snow up here this year as I had just bought tire chains for my car. I do feel bad for the ski operation just below us as their slopes have been yellow instead of white. We need that rain and snow of yours. Please send some!
