    The rim got hammered !!!!

    I live on the side of town towards the rim, and it makes a huge difference.

    Visited Flagstaff last spring, what a great place! Wish I made the connection that your shop is there, would have been nice to visit if you do that sort of thing. We've managed to avoid almost any real snow in the Boulder bubble so far this winter. I don't think we've had more than 6" at once.
    So I say to youth right now. Don't sway to the unjust,
    no matter what they say, never give in.

    Queen and I were driving back from PA and thinking of you man. Sheesh, thanks for the note we were thinking you might need a sled dog rescue.

    Other than the disaster that ensues I LOVE the silence a giant snowfall brings.

    We had 15-18" in Kingman, AZ, about 2 hours west and 3000' feet lower than Flagstaff. Biggest since the 40's. It all fell on Wednesday night into Thursday. Thursday night was 20 degrees so it all got a nice layer of ice and then last night was 12 degrees but now it's 45 and all melting away. I've got tree limbs everywhere and the landscaping close to the house is trashed. The rest of the yard is desert, it'll be fine.

    We have a big house and spare rooms. Abandon the west, it is doomed. The riding is good and dog is friendly.

    What I would give to experience a real snowstorm again. I'll start with my soul and concede from there.

    It's open today as long as the thaw doesn't cause rockslides or anything - people don't know we are the 5th snowiest city in the USA, we are at 7000 ft elevation.

    It snowed down to 1000ft in Baja !!!!

    I had snow in the backyard in Fountain Hills. Enough to matter.

    I know what you're going through. We've had almost 2" so far today and it's still coming down. I may have to leave a few minutes early to get to the movies on time.

    Slightly more seriously, we had to abandon plans to see friends in Salem today, since the city declared a snow emergency and banned street parking. Did they forget it snows in New England?

    And seriously, finally: you got a shit-ton of snow. Wow.
    GO!
