AZ Snowbowl reports lift tickets are sold out for 2/13 and 2/14, perhaps related to the predicted 15 inches of snow for the same time? I would think a huge storm was coming with the weekend being sold out before it gets going. What do I know.

There's a limited number of tickets available due to Covid protocols and they've been selling out weekends even before there was any natural snow on the mountain and only a few trails open. I wouldn't read too far into it.

I saw a thing on the tiktoks saying it's a little chilly in some parts of the extended hazworld.

We've got a string of six storms coming over the next ten days. It's not especially cold here, despite what they weatherpeople say.

Hit -27.4 F in Limon, Colorado yesterday. Not too often the helicopter gets grounded for low temps. [ youtube video ]

I'm glad it's not that cold here, but I think I'd rather have the cold than the snow. How's life these days?

@big_load Good! We’ve had a cold snap last week and quite a bit of snow. Kids finished off the hybrid igloo as a warming hut for the backyard sled hill. I was glad I was at work for the cold snap. Basically, I earned money sleeping EMS since the weather was not flyable almost the entire week.

NWS reports February to have been the driest since the dawn of time at PHX, Yuma, and El Centro. This goes back to even before humans or records because zero is zero even if there was nobody around to record it.

I have been watering the cactii in my front and back yard every month or so. First time I have felt the need to do that. My neighbor has like 20 saguaros in his yard of varying size and they are starting to look thin and a couple of the big ones are starting to lean.

We've had a couple of small wildfires around here this month. Plus for the first time that I can recall, a perma-haze like Phoenix has in the winter down here in Tucson for the past month. My allergies and asthma are going nuts.
