Winter storm in Tucson...

Well, as promised, we are experiencing a hellacious winter storm. So far, almost .2" of rain . But check out the size of the hail with which we were bombarded

Oooohhhhh aaaaahhhhh. It's funny, I was talking to my buddy in San Diego this morning and he said they were under a winter storm warning and there was a chance of 1 to 2 inches of snow. LMAO!!

Re: Winter storm in Tucson...

About a year ago, we had a hail storm here like I'd never seen before. Hail the size of golf balls, with spikes. I had to get my truck repaired; it looked like someone took a ball peen hammer to the roof and hood. Unreal. Car dealers were having hail sales, the vehicles were more hammered than mine.

We had that up here too, for about a week straight. Real pisser having to wait for the car to warm up and melt it off. Man, I miss my desert, no frost, could get cold. And before you northern boys start ya whinin', it gets down near zero at night sometimes. But, always running in shorts and a t by lunch... From what I have witnessed here on the coast, the rain is just as dangerous to these people as black ice is to the people out east.


All relative.

Re: Winter storm in Tucson...

Bacchus, it looks like you're going to need to be a Subaru to get through all that snow...

*sigh* Toronto doesn't get a whole lot of snow but lately I've noticed the snowbanks are getting to be about 6' tall near my house. Just seeing that tries my patience as I wait for spring. I couldn't even be bothered to shovel out the mess the snowplow left at the base of my driveway yesterday; it was higher than my bumper and ride height but thank goodness I've got AWD which let me plow over/through it. So tell me again about your Arizona sized snowstorm?

Re: Winter storm in Tucson...

Yeah man this weather SUCKS....can't ride my 54 at all. A fellow board member and myself went to Globe with the intent of riding Salt River Canyon, but it was way too cold, and ice on the road usually isn't a good thing for bikes. I hope this damn weather lets up soon, next weekend we ar suppose to go to the dunes.

{edit} Bacchus you should try and get a picture of Mt. Lemmon so the peeps on here can see that it snows in Tucson. I would but my old man took my digi cam with him on his business trip.
