Snow storm in Tucson

I blog often about unusual weather in Tucson.

Today an unusual weather day because it snowed.  And, it was a pretty spectacular event for this area.  It does snow every few years here but it's usually a dusting and lasts a few minutes.  This snow event actually caused snow to stick to grass and dirt areas and lasted in some areas for an hour or more.

I took this photo outside of the back door of the KGUN building and you can really see the snow flakes falling.

Snow and wind at around noon today on Tucson's east side.

The snow was coming down harder.
