Feb. 28, Thursday
We have been having crazy weather in the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix, AZ this past two months. In late January we had 4 straight days of rain, totaling up to 2 inches. On Wednesday we had snow in northeastern Phoenix, Scottsdale, Cave Creek (actually no measurable amount at Sky Harbor Airport). This was the first time for snow in Phoenix since 1998. Since we live a bit south of Phoenix, we had only rain. On Thursday morning I made a trip to the Superstition Mountains on the east side of Phoenix, which were still covered with snow. I managed to get a couple of shots of snow/ice on the Cholla cactus. I drove to the view point on the Apache Trail for shots of the Four Peaks area mountains.
