Most of you have the “privilege” of experiencing snow in your backyard every winter. But not here in Phoenix and Tucson.
Last week our state was “blessed” with snow. My daughter and husband live in Tucson and were rather startled by the white blanket over their city. See her in the photo below. She also sent us the one above.
Even the Tucson police were confused. Enjoy their reaction in today’s video. I couldn’t stop laughing when they say, “They call it …” Watch the video and hear what they label the white substance.
Below is another photo taken by my daughter in Sabino Canyon:

This is hilarious! I come from Canada where we get a lot of ‘frozen water’ and some days it can be a challenge to drive in. I literally LOL on this. ha! Thanks for morning chuckle!! 🙂

This truly hits home. We moved from Michigan to Sedona, Arizona, a place that rarely has snow and if so, it’s only a dusting that melts away by noon. This year, the weather got confused and thought we lived in the Arctic. Roads were un-driveable for a few days. No snowplows in the area or even snow shovels available anywhere. If you owned a snow shovel, you were the best friend of everyone. We left ours in Michigan when we moved. Who would have “thunk.”
Frozen water is beautiful but I’m a little tired of shoveling it off my driveway here in North Idaho!
“OK, that burns… It’s burning my hand right now.” ?
As a gal from Central Texas I can totally relate! Jealous…

What a delightful sense of humor those officers have! Thanks for sharing!
Too funny! White powdery stuff? He said “snow” but it sounded like snaow…. Great video, thanks for sharing.

LOL! He played the “embarrassed officer” quite well. Too funny.
Too funny! What a great sense of humor!
Hilarious! Thanks for sharing!
I love that they have crime scene tape up around a snow man
This is perfect!! My favorite line – “I”m going to call your parents!” LOLOL
We haven’t had an over-abundance of snow in Kentucky this year, but 10 years ago we had a major ice storm! THAT’S the stuff you don’t want!
Thanks for the laughs, Steve!
Oh my. Don and I watched this and laughed and laughed. Don grew up in Illinois, and we lived in Aurora, IL for 20 years. As you can imagine, snow was abundant there for more than half the year. But where I grew up, in Southern Oregon, we were very much like you guys. We’d pray for snow for Christmas! Even when it fell, it melted off within a day or so. I’ve always said snow is far more well behaved in Southern Oregon than it is in Illinois. Here in Oregon, it stays up in the mountains so you can play in it when you want, but don’t have to deal with it every day. The biggest issues here are black ice and fog, which aren’t fun. But again, that is only a problem for a month or so.
So thanks, Steve. For the laugh!
I’m in Southern Oregon, too (where are you? I am dying to find a Christian literary group).
The other night we were out around midnight. With sticks. Beating the snow/ice/snow/ice off trees and the lilac bush. We managed to save trees that were near to the ground, as in the tops of the trees… but we couldn’t escape the very cold shower of snow.
That was fun. How about you?

Hilarious! This literally had me laughing out loud!
We had so much frozen water here in our little corner of Ohio this morning that school was cancelled. Again. Sheesh. 🙂
The high in Phoenix today was only 76. Brrrr.
A mere 30 degrees warmer than it was a week ago.
Finally, back to normal.
our weather here has been schizophrenic for several years. Rain/snow/ice then 2 weeks of 50-60 degrees. Trees bloom. Then mad schizo scientist plunges into the 20s.
This came across my Twitter feed and I laughed and laughed… I shared it with my hubby, and we laughed and laughed.
Funny, I don’t know about Tuscon, but Flagstaff I understand gets snow routinely.
I lived in Seattle when at Bible school and watching residents freaking out over a dusting of snow was fun. I laughed and laughed. I grew up in Minnesota and lived in Duluth so I have laughing rights.
I grew up in Alaska so a little frozen water was normal over half the year.
In Arizona, Flagstaff is up in the mountains but didn’t expect over two feet of snow in 24 hours, breaking a 104 year old record.
Tucson down in the desert like Phoenix so the “snow” was highly unusual.
From Alaska to AZ? Wasn’t there Hawaii in there somewhere, or Wisconsin..? 🙂
I moved from MN to Palm Springs. Sad to say, I did not know what I was getting into and within instants of driving in a hot car, I started swearing (years after having quit!). Years later, I want to move back to the desert. It’s chilly here!
I bet you had sticker shock when you moved.

So clever! Here in West Central Illinois, we’ve had so many more ice and snow days than anticipated, public schools are scrambling to figure out how to have enough class days to not lose funding but not be in session into June. It isn’t easy–the school board of nearby Hannibal, MO (of Mark Twain fame), added school days and moved the date of graduation to later than scheduled and now have been SUED by a group of parents of ’19 grads who had enlisted in the military and must report for duty a few days after the original graduation date, and families whose military members have already scheduled leave to attend their kids’ and sibs’ graduation. That’s a winter problem that wouldn’t have crossed my mind!
Love the way he says ‘s now’ Too funny!
love it! this truly is rare!!!!
To add to my earlier comment: years ago a local DJ who came from Montana called snow–“lumpy rain”. I thought it fit perfectly. He also did a monologue one morning about Johnny Pothole growing with the thawing/freezing cycle. Johnny Pothole had quite a family around him until the road crews came and filled the potholes in. The monologue was done at least 20 years ago, but I remember it as though it was yesterday. It was good, clean fun and got the morning started with a good laugh–the way the video did.
That’s so cool! Amazing! God has really blessed that area. It’s snowing here as well, kinda unexpected. Hope you’ll enjoy your first snowfall. God bless all of you.
