Ten days ago I attended a garden/landscape conference north of Flagstaff AZ.
In the morning there was 4 inches of wet new snow with snow clinging to the
green leaves on the aspen trees - usually deciduous with no leaves by the
time of the first snowfall.  Meanwhile, at our home near Phoenix 130 miles
south, the temp went over 100 deg on that same day.   The past week temps
have varied from low 70s to mid/high 90s.  Nice weather for planting the
fall/winter garden.  -Olin
