3:07 PM Sunday March 12, 2006

Who woulda thunk it? Snowed in—in Arizona! After nearly 140 days of drought and 70 degree weather, Phil and I arrive in Payson and voilà … rain in the valley (Phoenix and surrounding area) and 18” of snow in Payson. As Elvis would have said, “Thank you … thank you very much!!” We told them we would bring an end to their worries when we arrived and they didn’t believe us.

We’ve had no Internet since 11 PM last Friday night when the storm clouds moved in. Then, by Saturday morning, our datastorm dish was covered with snow so still no signal. This afternoon, my HERO got up on the roof (risking life and limb), cleared the snow away and when the sky cleared we were online again!

Right now, the sun is shining and the temperatue is up to 38 degrees. The snow will melt fast at that rate. Our winter of 2006 trip to Arizona has turned into quite an adventure.
