Here We Go Again…

It’s a nice Sunday afternoon of football here in Sonoita.  After all, it’s Conference Championship Sunday!!!  And the snow is falling again in Sonoita.

The weather service is again issued a heavy snow warning for us even though we usually dont get any when they do that.  We are kind of on the cut line elevation wise for a fairly large accumulation.  They are predicting 2 – 5 inches for elevations between 3000 and 5000 feet.  For elevations 5000 – 8000 feet, they say expect 5 – 10 inches.  We are right at 5000 feet here in Sonoita.  Above 8000 feet, they say you could see 10  – 16 inches.

We go through this every winter.  With mountain snow, its all about the elevation.  I think they play it safe too, because we rarely get any accumulation of snow when they say we could.  However, its usually not this kind of predicted accumulation.  The kids are once again excited.

Our rural, mountain, high dessert area sure looks beautiful when the snow is falling…
