BT needs a shovel Sun, 03/12/06 7:04 AM (permalink)
3/11/06-Snow In San Fancisco, snow in San Deagio, snow in Arizona. Quite a weather pattern were in. Sunny and warm in New England had the grill fired up yesterday and going to do it again today. But where ever BT is it looks like he needs a shovel. Looks like you Mid Westerners took quite a beating I honestly hope all are safe. Chow Jim

    Actually, no shovel required here in the Arizona desert borderlands. We did have a memorable rainstorm last night--the wind howled and it poured much of the night--but that pleases the locals a lot (rain in the desert is almost always good) and today dawned bright and sunny as usual. I haven't gone out to look at the mountains yet. I'm betting/hoping they will have a nice cap of snow (up to 14 inches was predicted up there).

    It IS a little chilly: 48 degrees right now at 11 AM and the prediction is for 32 degrees tonight which won't make all the plants putting on a spring growth spurt happy. But it's supposed to be back in the 70's by day after tomorrow.

      BT, what's your elevation? about 1800-2000 ft.?

        3000 ft.--we are higher here than Tucson (but last night's snow level was predicted at 4500). The land slopes upward toward the border where Nogales is 4000 ft. I am close to halfway there.

          The Rogue valley slopes from 1800 ft at Ashland, 1500 here in Talent, to 700 ft. in Grants Pass. We only get a light dusting or two of snow a year, usually in November-December, but we had a full fledged Snowstorm on the Valley floor on Friday.
          During my tenure/penance served in Scottsdale in the late '80's, there was snow one winter at the Northern Reaches(2000 ft) of the 'Dale in what was Desert, but now is now a Vast Wasteland. Waistland? The natives were quite smitten with Saguaros draped in Snow.

            The first winter I spent here we had a storm like last nght but colder and in the daytime. I ended up with an inch or so on the ground in front of my house. I took plenty of pictures. That was the winter of 2001-2001 and it hasn't happened since, though.

            I also recall the last Christmas I spent in San Francisco--must have been 2000. It snowed on Christmas Eve. Nothing stuck, but it was pretty sitting in a cafe and watching it come down outside. Reminded me of my first trip to Europe: A cafe on Mozartplatz in Salzburg, a strolling violinist, hot chocolate, Sachertorte, snow drifting down outside in the square. Here it is, Cafe Glockenspiel (to the left is Salzburg cathedral, one of the most amazing Baroque churches in Europe):



            See--I can get ANY thread back to the subject of FOOD. Perhaps that means I need a different sort of shovel which is what I thought Jim meant at first anyway
