8 inches in Payson! Wow! It started in again with renewed vigor about an hour ago, has snowed a couple inches in the past hour. So it has started to move over this way! The trouble is the temperature is about 30 degrees--way too warm. I hope it gets colder so it won't all melt. NWS forecast says 4 more inches overnight in Eagar. I expect Greer, Sunrise, Pinetop and Alpine will get more--they usually do.
I think I just bought the last 3 bags of heater pellets in Round Valley, at Bashas'! The stores can't seem to keep them in stock. We have a pellet stove, also a wood fireplace, gas furnace and electric as well. I am glad we have more than one heat source! So many people do not. I work in a heating stove business, and it's amazing how many people depend upon only one heat source. You gotta have a woodstove or fireplace--they will work even when the electricity goes off. Plus, firewood is there for the cutting--all you need is a $20 cutting permit, chainsaw and pickup truck. Oh, well, yeah, and someone with muscles to do the job!
